Homemade Irish cream

St. Patrick’s Day is coming! Why not celebrate with your own Irish cream? This is kind of cobbled together from a bunch of different recipes, adjusted for what sounded good to me.

I used:

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1  cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Irish whiskey
  • 1 packet VIA instant coffee (or 2 Tbsp. strong brewed coffee or espresso)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Your goal here is to blend this all really, really well — I used an immersion blender, but just tossing it all in your regular blender will work fine too. Store it in the fridge in a container that can be shaken up because the chocolate will settle to the bottom as it sits. Serve over ice or in coffee. Enjoy!
