Boy, did this go over well with the Bailey's lovers! Definitely more boozy-tasting than most liqueur-flavored fudges I've tried (not a bad thing, you just need to be careful about how many pieces you down before leaving your holiday party -- make sure you snag a few pieces for the cop in case you get pulled over, lol). I didn't have plain Bailey's, so I used the Caramel flavored Bailey's instead. I'd like to try this with the Chocolate Mint flavored Bailey's as well. Definitely a treat for sharing, because it's super-rich (duh, it's fudge, right?), and really thick in the pan size stated in the recipe. I'd be curious to try this with the chip ratio reversed, too (more white than semisweet). Thanks for posting, Mirj! :)
