Author Jenny Arnot has produced the charity cookbook, called ‘Unforgettable Recipes’, with contributions from leading food and drink industry businesses including Buffalo Trace distributor Hi-Spirits,

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Truffles are ideal for festive buffets or as a treat at the end of a meal, served with coffee or a measure of award-winning Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

The cookbook features 46 recipes, including cocktails such as Southern Comfort with Lemonade & Fresh Lime, Southern Comfort Black & Cola, and Buffalo Trace and Ginger.

Jenny hopes to raise more than £25,000 by asking for donations for a copy of the cookbook.  She said, “Having lost my mum to dementia back in January 2017, I felt I wanted to do something to help others like my mum get support for such a cruel and life-changing illness.”

The recipe for Buffalo Trace Bourbon Chocolate Truffles is:


  • 125 g finely chopped pecans
  • 200ml Buffalo Trace
  • 75g butter, softened
  • 450g icing sugar
  • 450g Dark chocolate, melted


  • Soak the chopped pecans in Buffalo Trace for 4-8 hours.
  • Cream the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy, stir in pecan mixture, and refrigerate.
  • Once firm, shape into balls and refrigerate again for an hour.
  • Dip into melted chocolate and cool.
