Baileys Fudge Ingredients

Baileys Fudge raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips 
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup Baileys Irish cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

PRO TIP:

The alcohol content in the Baileys Irish cream fudge is not cooked off, so this is an adult treat! 

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

BAILEYS: Baileys is only one brand of Irish Cream liqueur; any brand can be used in this Baileys fudge recipe.

How to Make This Baileys Fudge Recipe

STEP ONE: Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set it aside.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Line the pan with enough parchment paper so that it overhangs the sides of the pan. This will give you a sling that will make lifting the fudge out of the pan easier.

STEP TWO: Place the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a microwave-safe bowl.

STEP THREE: Heat mixture, 30 seconds at a time, stirring between intervals. Heat for a total of 1 to 1½ minutes.

STEP FOUR: Stir until the chocolate is completely melted though the mixture is thick; then, stir in the Irish cream and vanilla extract. Initially, the mixture will be thick and lumpy, but as the Baileys incorporates, it will make a smooth, pourable mixture.

STEP FIVE: Spread the fudge mixture into the prepared loaf pan with a rubber spatula and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

PRO TIP:

To help cut the fudge after chilling, score a grid on the top of the fudge when it is barely set but still warm.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I store this fudge?

How do I slice through chilled fudge easily? 

An easy way to slice this easy treat, dip a large sharp flat knife in boiling water, dry it completely, and cut one long slice (the heat will help the blade to glide through).

Is this fudge kid-safe?

This easy fudge recipe is not safe for children to eat. The Irish cream does not cook off and, therefore, should only be enjoyed by adults.
