Bailey’s Irish Cream Fudge (with Video)

| | |

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 creamy and delicious Bailey's Irish Cream fudge is made with just 4 ingredients. The perfect homemade gift just for adults!

Irish Cream Fudge Recipe

This easy no-cook fudge recipe is creamy, melt-in-your-mouth decadence with a smooth Irish Cream flavor and no harsh alcohol burn.

The white chocolate and Bailey’s Irish Cream combines together to make a delicious dessert that is perfect for entertaining or gift-giving.

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.

Or… you can always double-down and pair the fudge with my Bailey’s Coffee a la Mode or Bailey’s dessert cocktail! I’ve melted this fudge into a hot cup of coffee for a delicious coffee cocktail that is creamy, smooth and has just the right amount of Bailey’s flavor.

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 with other creamy alcohols – Horchata fudge or Tequila Rose fudge, anyone?

I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. They have a great variety of Irish Cream Whiskeys to choose from.

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.

TIP: while I have had no issues with these increments, you may want to start off using just 1/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk and then adding some more after the addition of the Bailey's. This will allow you more control over the texture - make sure your fudge "batter" looks like mine does in the video and pictures.

  1. What did I do wrong. Mine stand stick and never set up completely. With that being said it taste amazing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Pam,
      I’m so sorry I missed your comment. I’ve heard from some readers that using Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk causes this issue – you want a thick one like the Great Value or Eagle Brand makes.

  2. I can never get my cut pieces to be even squares
    Any suggestions to help me to learn how to cut my fudge
    Love your recipes
    Thank you
    CC

    1. Hi CC,
      One thing that I do is use a large chef’s knife – one is that is longer and taller than the fudge being cut. That allows me to cut each length of fudge evenly.
      Also, be sure to cut the fudge while it is still cold – softer fudge will rip or cut less easily.
      If you still need a bit of help, you could try using a pastry cutter – the kind that has measurements along the bottom and use that to guide you.
      Hopefully this helps!
