Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge
This Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge is a great festive treat to bring to a St. Patrick’s Day gathering. These bite-sized delights are decorated with shamrock and gold coin toppings along with green sparkly sugar sprinkles. All that fresh, green color has me thinking of Spring already!
This recipe uses mini marshmallows and butter which adds to its ultra-smooth texture. It also can be made on the stove top in a medium-large pot for 15 minutes. It has to set for 30 minutes at room temperature and then 1 hour in the refrigerator. You can store it in the fridge for up to 5 days. When taking it out of the refrigerator I suggest letting it cool to room temp before devouring!
Want to know the best part about this recipe? (Besides how good it tastes) It only takes 8 ingredients to make! Just like this Chocolate Walnut Fudge recipe! Who doesn’t love a simple yet super tasty fudge recipe? I know I do.
A square (or more) of this Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge is so delicious when paired with a cup of hot coffee.
You can also enjoy this Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge without the festive sprinkles and have it be all about the amazing Irish cream flavor. You can’t go wrong with that.
This Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Fudge recipe only calls for 1 teaspoon of Baileys Original Irish Cream, so it’s not much yet still has that “hint” of flavor. It goes very well with the chocolate! You can certainly experiment with adding more if you prefer a stronger flavor.
