I love Bailey’s Irish cream. It has a perfect blended of Irish whiskey and other ingredients that make it a special and quite decadent drink. but it is expensive to buy. Fortunately you can make your own Bailey’s Irish Cream.
I recently decided to use it to make some fudge. I had a bottle of it that had been in my liquor cabinet (unopened) for several months.
I assembled all my ingredients, and lo and behold, the bottle’s contents had gone off. The cream had sunk to the bottom of the jar and no amount of stirring or mixing would make it good again. But I didn’t have to abandon my idea for making Bailey’s Irish cream fudge.
Bailey’s Irish cream is just fabulous when used in recipes. Check out this easy Baileys mudslide truffle recipe for a really tasty way to infuse the flavor into candy.
Thus, my recipe for my own version of it. Tastes every bit of good for a fraction of the price of a new bottle. You will never pay for the real thing again!
Now off to make my great Bailey’s Irish Cream and Coffee Fudge.
