Since we’re not able to host or go to holiday parties this year, we decided to make some batches of homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream (from scratch!) to deliver to a few people that we can’t get together with this year. This recipe comes from my boyfriend’s mom and was the first time we made it ourselves. I was actually shocked at how easy it was to make, and if you’re looking for a cute, thoughtful (and delicious) homemade gift for a friend or neighbor, this is perfect.
Here’s what you need:
– 1 cup fat free half and half
– 1 can sweetened condensed milk
– 1 3/4 cupS Irish Whisky
– 1 tsp instant coffee
– 2 Tbsp Hershey’s chocolate syrup
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 tsp almond extract
Once you have all your ingredients, pour them all into a blender and mix on high for 30 seconds. That’s it! You’re done. Each batch makes about 32 oz of homemade Irish Cream. Then all that’s left is pouring the mixture into your favorite container to share with friends … and don’t forget to make some for yourself as well.
We found THESE GLASS BOTTLES with a swing top stopper. They hold 33 oz and come in a set if 6. And with a little wine bag, you’ve got the perfect gift to drop off on someone’s doorstep for the holidays.
We had a wine bag left over which is what is displayed above, but we had to order more for our full set of gifts. If you need some wine bag suggestions, here are some to consider. They come in a set of 12 and there are 5 colors to choose from: LINK TO WINE BAGS ON AMAZON.
Lastly, if you still need a blender, I recommend looking at a NINJA. We use ours all the timing for blending soups, making smoothies and now, for making Bailey’s!
