Bailey's Irish Cream Fudge

 This is a re-post from 2010.  This fudge is really good!
I have always had trouble making fudge.  My kids like it and they laugh at my failed attempts.  I thought I would give it one more try with this recipe and it worked!  This fudge is made with Bailey's Irish Cream for St. Patrick's Day.  It turned out really good and it is easy.

Irish Cream Fudge

  • 2-12oz. packages of milk chocolate chips
  • 1-12oz. package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2-7oz. jars of marshmallow cream
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cups of Irish Cream (Baileys or homemade)
  • 2 cups of chopped nuts (optional)
  • 4 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1-12oz. can of evaporated milk
  • 1/2 pound of butter, softened
In a very large bowl, combine the milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, vanilla extract, Irish Cream, and nuts (if you are adding them). Set this mixture aside.
Line a 10 X 15 baking pan with foil and spread lightly with butter or margarine.
In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat and cook slowly, stirring constantly for about 10 minutes.
Pour the milk mixture into the the chocolate chip mixture. Stir slowly by hand to combine. It is very important to do this by hand and NOT use any kind of mixer.
Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and chill until set.

I think that fudge is one of my very favorite treats of life. My mother used to make it at Christmas, and I think yours looks very similar and equally wonderful. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!

Happy Foodie Friday...

MrsJenB said...

Oh my gooooosh. Bailey's + fudge? Seriously? And me with a rainy weekend and nothing to do but cook...what's a girl to do? Sigh...

Michael's Kitchen said...

What a wonderful blog. I just posted a thing about chocolate waffles on the Foodie Friday. This is so cool. But I really like your idea about the Bailey's and fudge. That is great.

That's really look good and yummy for sure!

Your fudge looks yummy, Sherry. I have always been able to make chocolate fudge just fine. It's the brown sugar fudge which I have trouble with. And no, fudge isn't just for Christmas! I can eat it any time.

The Mortician would love this recipe! Fudge is one of those recipes that I'm unsure if I can really veganize or not. I should give it a try some day...maybe tomorrow. Haha!

Marigene said...

Oh my goodness, that fudge sounds yummy!

Nann from At Nann's Table said...

Wow what a recipe! And I love how you presented it. One piece and you'd be in chocolate heaven. I am now just looking at your great photo without even tasting it. (smile)

The Other Me Is Sane said...

this is the best thing on the internet this week. I got out the Irish Cream, but no choc chips...so had to drink the Bailey's and wait another day for the fudge! I'm sure it will be worth it. thanks for sharing this recipe.

I am bookmarking this. My Christmas fudge didn't set right (we moved to CO, we're from TX), so I need a new recipe!
