If there’s one drink that screams Christmas, it’s Baileys. But as it’s quite high in syns, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to enjoy my usual tipple over the festive season whilst staying on plan. These little truffles are the perfect little boozy hit!
Chestnut puree has been something of a revelation to my Christmas baking so far this year. You should be able to find it in most supermarkets. It’s so versatile and low in syns – try these Low Syn Chestnut and Chocolate Tarts.

Chocolate essence or flavouring is a really good way of boosting the chocolately flavour whilst avoiding the added syns of cocoa powder. If you can’t find any in your local supermarket, you can pick some up on Amazon.
These 1 syn Chocolate Baileys Truffles are a great way to stay on plan this Christmas while avoiding all the high syn chocolate goodies!
Synning the sweetener
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for these 1 Syn Chocolate Baileys Truffles uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 24 truffles. That’s 1 tablespoon per 8 truffles, so unless you intend eating more than 8 of these there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself. Otherwise, you would have to add an extra half a syn on for every 8 truffles.
