I am all for home made/make from scratch/ whatever you choose to call it but at this time of year we are all time poor. What's not to like about a super quick home made gift which is sure to please. If I am entirely honest I'm not a huge fan of the original,product but I know I am in the minority so go ahead and give this a go.
Those wonderful 'thermomixers' over at Bake Play Smile were the inspiration though it's fair to say Google is awash with alternatives. Personally I don't think you can call it a Baileys if it isn't made with Irish Whiskey so do as I did and use one like Jameson's
I whisked mine up in the Thermomix ( 30 seconds sp4) but it does only need a really good shake so feel free to shake it any way you choose!
homemade Irish creme
- 380g Irish whiskey
- 235g double (heavy) cream
- 1 can 400g condensed milk ( I used the caramel variation in one batch and it was spot on!)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp coffee extract
- 15 g chocolate syrup ( I used a caramel syrup for one batch- sadly I can't remember where I bought it and since the labelling is French it must have been in France – you see I have amazing powers of deduction)
Mix all the ingredients until just combined.
It's that simple!!
Try to bottle and package before drinking!
Merry Christmas 🙂
