Okay, so it might be out of the budget to give a bottle of Irish Cream to all my friends this year – but I can definitely buy one bottle and whip up countless batches of this Bailey’s Irish Cream No-Cook Fudge!
This easy no-cook fudge recipe is creamy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious with a smooth Irish Cream flavor and no harsh alcohol burn.
There’s a very small amount of alcohol in each piece (only 1/4 cup of Bailey’s in the whole batch and I cut mine into 15-18 squares) so not only is it affordable to make multiple batches for gift-giving, you also don’t have to worry about over-indulging.
This Irish Cream fudge is a great way to enjoy Bailey’s without having a drink – perfect for parties or nights when you want something special but don’t want to imbibe.
If you wanted to make a non-alcoholic version of this recipe, you could swap in Bailey’s Coffee Creamer in place of the Irish Cream.
You can also adapt this recipe to other creamy alcohols – Horchata fudge, or Tequila Rose fudge, anyone?
