DIY Bailey's- a Perfect Holiday Treat

3 of my favorite things: Coffee, Chocolate, Whiskey. And I'll bet there are a whole lot of you out there that would agree with me. So what makes for a fantastic treat that's sure to impress at any party (but especially those during the cooler months)? Bailey's! It makes it even more fun (and economical) if you make it yourself, get some cool containers to decorate and give as gifts.

This version of Bailey's has, of course, more of the things I love than is called for in other recipes and is sure to knock the socks off everyone at the party (mostly because there's so much whiskey in it) and they'll never know it was so eeeeeeeeeeeeeasy! This is an egg-free version because raw eggs ick me out but those versions are really tasty too. Hope you enjoy... and are able to forgive the incredibly heinous one-handed cell phone photos. Gross.

1 cup heavy whipping cream (or regular cream or half n half depending on your preference)
1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 single serve packet of instant coffee (~ 2 Teaspoons)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Hershey's Dark Chocolate Syrup (any chocolate syrup will work though)
1/2 bottle of WHISKEY!!!!!!!!!!!! (or about 1 2/3 cups)

A blender or in my case a juice container and a hand mixer
Serving (or gifting) jar/bottle/growler/plastic sealable baggi

  • Pour in all your ingredients. (I like to put the whiskey in last so that there's less clumping.)
  • Blend till smooth.
  • Pour into serving/gifting container and store in fridge til ready to serve. Should keep for about 4-6 weeks in the fridge. (but don't go drinking it if it's all clumpy and stinky and then blame me for giving yourself food poisoning.)
