Made this for an early St. Patty's dinner. I made major changes though so my rating is based on my changes. I used the mint chocolate flavored Bailey's, did not add the chocolate into the custard mix and then used brownies rather than pound cake. Two of us loved the results (me being one of them) and two found it a little too rich, which is why I gave it four stars. It definitely makes more than four servings. I made four good sized parfaits and then had enough to make 27 shot glass sized ones to take to a party the next day.
This is sooo good - I have a hard time keeping my spoon out of the custard and waiting until company arrives! Thank you!
These were very good, definitely a good dessert for company. I followed the advice about whipping the cream cheese first and it worked out great. I had some of the custard leftover and put it in the freezer. I would say this makes more than 4 servings.
Great recipe. I have made just the custard and frozen it like a popscicle ... yummy!
I gotta tell you, Ev. If I lived anywhere close to you or SQ, my hips wouldn’t fit on an airplane! This is the 2nd of 2 desserts I’ve made today for ZWT & it is absolutely divine! It is also 1 of the quickest fixes to get to divine that I’ve ever seen. The quick-fix custard ingredient list would be right there on everyone’s Top 5 Most Favourite List. How could it not be fantastic w/Bailey’s, cream cheese, whipping cream, sugar & chocolate? I used those tiny choc chip morsels for the chocolate, but otherwise was faithful in the prep. This is so dinner party worthy that it makes me want to invite guests for dinner tonite, but then I’d have to share … so it’s not happening! Yet another winner, Ev. Thx.
This custard is wonderful and I used my homemade Bailey's Irish Cream Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur (Gift-Giving or for Yourself!) for the booze, however, I recommend that the softened cream cheese be whipped with an electic beater until creamy prior to adding all the other custard ingredients in order to eliminate the cottage cheese look and lumpiness of the custard. I also was not wild about the pound cake being used in the parfaits but I would try them again with broken chocolate chip cookies. I think that would be tastier than the pound cake (too bland) because the custard does not soak into it. Or possibly dribble with espresso or liquer. For garnish, I think Andes mints (which I used), Hershey's kisses or Hug and Kisses would work great for color. Thanks evelyn for the basis of the custard and something to expand on this recipe with.
