Bailey's Creamy Chocolate Pudding

"I served this in wine glasses & topped with whipped cream for dessert on Valentine's Day! It was the first time that I made it but it certainly won't be the last. Use sweet, semi-sweet or dark bittersweet chocolate according to how sweet your tooth is. Timing doesn't include refrigeration."

    This was a lovely pudding. I doubled the recipe and it made 6 servings (we like large portions in my home) and I really liked the Baileys flavour which came through clearly despite the chocolate. In fact I almost didn't add the chocolate because it tasted so good just with the addition of the Baileys! Thank you for posting, I will be making this very often.

    I'm a Bailey's lover, so I just had to try this recipe; I made it for a dinner party and copied your idea of serving it in little stem glasses: it looked beautiful topped with a little whipped cream, and it was gone in about 45 seconds! (:>) The only change I made was using skim milk because it was what I had in the fridge, but it still was delicious, and low-fat too! Thanks for this recipe!

    YUM..... YUM! Excellent dessert. Perfect for company, or a special treat. It's like having an after dinner drink and dessert all in one. So easy to make in just a few minutes, and it tastes wonderful. This is a keeper recipe.

    Excellent! Wow - I don't really like pudding but have never made it from scratch before. I was attracted by the idea of having a choice of chocolate flavor and the Irish cream liqueur. I made the recipe as directed with bittersweet chocolate and subbed Emmet's Irish Cream because I was out of Bailey's. I was amazed at how easy and quick the recipe came together. Next time, I think I will double the recipe and put it in a baked pie shell. Thanks CountryLady, we really enjoyed your pudding.

    This was so delicious! It was super creamy and rich. Next time I make it though, I will add whipped cream. Definitely will make again!


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!! The photo is 4 generations - my 84 year old mother, myself, my daughter & my youngest granddaughter - taken at the end of 2006. I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted. My thanks to Dreamgoddess for hosting the contest & SusieD for the banner design! <img src="">
