Pour chocolate morsels and espresso powder into a medium sized mixing bowl. Set aside
In a small saucepan over medium / medium high heat, melt butter and then pour in heavy cream. Heat but do not bring to a boil. Once hot, pour butter / cream mixture over the chocolate morsels and stir continuously until all of the chocolate is melted.. about 1-2 minutes
Add in the Baileys Original Irish Cream and stir to combine
Cover bowl with foil or plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator for 3 hours
After 3 hours goes by, line a 13 x 9 baking sheet with parchment paper and remove chocolate truffles from refrigerator
Using a candy scoop or just a regular spoon, scoop out truffle mix and roll between your hands to create 1 inch round ball shapes
Place them on the baking pan and once done, transfer pan to the freezer for 20 minutes.
Once 20 minutes have gone by, set up a double boiler on your stove top to melt the chocolate coating.
Take a medium sized saucepan, fill it up with 2-3 inches of water and then place on top of the pan, a glass or metal bowl that is larger than the opening of your saucepan. Add the chocolate melts and cooking oil. Bring the water to a boil over medium - high heat and the steam will gently melt the chocolate in the top bowl. Just be sure to watch the steam and have a kitchen towel handy in case you need to re-position the top bowl.
Stir the chocolate melts continuously until all is melted then take a truffle ball, set it on top of a fork and lower it into the melted chocolate.
Using a spoon, spoon chocolate over the top and when it has completely been coated, remove from the bowl of chocolate and lightly tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate and then gently transfer the truffle ball back to the parchment lined baking pan.
Repeat until all have been coated and then return pan back to the freezer for 10 minutes.
Once 10 minutes go by, remove and decorate or just enjoy.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
