Irish Cream

One of the best things about Christmas is Baileys. I limit myself to it just during the holiday season as a special treat. This year, thanks to the Smitten Kitchen, I’ve learned to make my own. This has been nothing short of life changing, particularly since most of the ingredients I already have in my fridge because I make so much ice cream. Rather than add in Baileys I already made (and thus wouldn’t be able to drink), I decide to adapt this recipe to the Irish cream. I recommend pairing this with a chocolate chip cookie


2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup brown sugar
0.3 cup whiskey
2 tsp cocoa powder
Dash of vanilla


In a sauce pan create the base by combining the heavy cream, milk, brown sugar, and cocoa powder. Whisk until the sugar and cocoa have dissolved.

Stir in the whiskey and dash of vanilla. Feel free to add less whiskey. I would not add more because it won’t freeze

Add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions.

Refrigerate for a few hours.

Serve and enjoy!
