A simple Irish cream fudge made with everyone’s favorite liqueur. All you need are four ingredients to make a smooth chocolate fudge with hints of Bailey’s Irish Cream.
Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur is one of my favorite drinks. It’s so versatile.
You can put it into cocktails, martinis, and coffees. In fact, we have quite a few recipes that feature this tasty liqueur.
Using only a few ingredients, you can create a chocolate fudge that’s sure to please. Shall we get started?
How to make Irish cream fudge?
First, start by lining an eight by eight (8×8) inch casserole dish with parchment paper. You can use a nine by nine (9×9) inch if needed.
One good way to make sure the paper stays in place, when the fudge is added, is to butter the pan first. Once it’s lined, set the dish aside.
Next, grab a large saucepan and place it over low heat. To the pan, add the chocolate chips, Irish cream liqueur, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract.
Stir everything to combine. It should only take about five (5) minutes for the chocolate to melt.
But, you’ll want to keep stirring the whole time to keep the chips from sticking and burning.
Then, once the ingredients have mixed, pour the hot fudge into the prepared casserole dish.
Take a look at the photo above, your Irish cream fudge should look like ours.
Now, use a rubber spatula to transfer the fudge and smooth it out. The next step is the hardest one of the recipe
Afterward, place the Baileys fudge into your fridge to set for up to four (4) hours.
Last, once it’s set, cut the candy into thirty-six (36) individual pieces for serving. It can be stored in a sealed container on your counter (or in your fridge) for up to five (5) days.
That’s it, your Bailey’s Irish cream fudge recipe is done!
