Hey, y'all! Picture this... smooth Bailey's Irish Cream combined with chocolate. Oh yes, I did! This simple homemade fudge recipe combines chocolate, Bailey's Irish Cream, and condensed milk and can be whipped up in just minutes!
Ashley and I have a tradition of taking celebratory shots each time our teams score a touchdown. Now that my team (the Jacksonville Jaguars) don't suck for the first time in like a decade, this has suddenly become a terrible idea. So instead of taking a shot every time Fournette runs it in for a touchdown, I've started just drinking throughout the whole game. I mean... why just celebrate little victories when I can celebrate actually having a winning record?
When the Jags won their game on Sunday, the Jags officially made it into the playoffs. To celebrate, I ran downstairs, and just gazed at all of the drink options (which were plenty, my parents have a fully stocked bar) trying to figure out what I wanted. To the right of the bar, my dad has set up a hot cocoa bar for their annual Christmas party. It's all decked out with toppings for hot cocoa... and that's when it hit me. I need to make some Boozey Fudge!
There were so many flavor combinations that I could go with but I settled on the most obvious- chocolate and Bailey's Irish Cream. I mean... if that isn't a winning combination, I don't know what is!
And so... the Bailey's Irish Cream Fudge was born. This fudge recipe would make a great gift idea and is sure to be a hit with your crew I mean... let's face it, people love the taste of chocolate and liquor together!
Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk 1/2 cup Bailey's Irish Cream (I used Caramel flavor!) 1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Line an 8x8 inch pan with aluminum foil or wax paper (Hello easy cleanup!)
2. Place chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl. Microwave for one minute. Stir and microwave again in 30-second increments until completely melted.
3. Stir in Bailey's and vanilla extract until smooth.
4. Pour mixture into the prepared pan.
5. Cover and refrigerate for four hours until firm.
**Note** This recipe makes the fudge PLENTY boozy! If you are into a more subtle flavor (I won't judge you if you don't judge me) then you can cut down to 1/4 cup of Bailey's.
