This recipe is inspired by a number of different recipes I have tweaked according to my tastes. I love it every way you can imagine, on ice, in milkshakes, and even recently made in to my EXTREMELY homemade Baileys Irish Cream Ice Cream. Delicious

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add ingredients in blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Taste (!) I usually adjust the flavor at this point, adding either more half and half, more chocolate or leaving it as is.

I made this as St. Patty's Day gifts for my friends, with an Irish Blessing attached. It looked beautiful and tastes great....very much like the original! I used half and half instead of whole cream, dark chocolate, and used only 1 cup of whiskey....delish!

I have been looking for this one for a long time. This is the one. If you are not sure on the amount of Whiskey, I purchased a 375ml Bottle (a Mickey) and that was more than enough. Used Vanilla extract and instant coffee. Tastes great. For gift giving, pour into clean empty clear beer bottles, cap/cork, Shrink wrap top with wine bottle wraps and label yourself. Try adding Tia Maria and Tequila Rose & make a trio! Cheers!

Made this for the holidays & it was a huge hit!!!! Did cut down the amount of whiskey, felt it was a little strong for our taste.
