Irish cream fudge ... mmmmm...
Nothing expresses Irish culture quite like Baileys Irish Cream, the delicious beverage that comprises 50% of the spirits exported from Ireland.
And we have found from experience that Bailey’s goes great with the taste of good ‘ol chocolate fudge…
Sooooo – what better way to get your Irish mojo working than throwing a bang on party, filled with two of Earth’s most delicious flavors?

Now, let your creativity take wings and explore variations.
Substitute toasted slivered almonds, pistachios, walnuts, cashews or hazelnuts for pecans. Add a touch of flair by gently pressing nuts on top of fudge before refrigerating.
Substitute cappuccino, caramel, butterscotch, peanut butter or white, vanilla flavored baking chips for chocolate chips.
Substitute sweetened condensed milk for evaporated milk.
Switch-up flavors of Baileys Irish Cream - hazelnut, crème caramel, mint chocolate and coffee.
People eat with their eyes. Not only must home chefs be masters at the art of cooking, we should learn the basics of artistic plating.
Different sizes and shapes of white plates are good because they put the focus solely on the food.
When you're serving individual plates of Irish Cream Fudge, consider a small square white plate. Put an odd number of pieces on each plate i.e. three, not four, five not six.
For a pretty table presentation, arrange fudge on crystal cake stand.
Put a white paper doily on top of the plate before arranging the candy to add a wee bit of Irish class.
Play around with different ideas and before you know it, you'll be expressing your Irish food stylist self!
In the beginning, Baileys unique mixture of cream and whiskey was marketed toward elderly spinsters, with sophistication.
We're not certain where we went wrong, but after consuming 3-4 pieces of our heavenly fudge, our elderly spinsters fell asleep.
However, their synchronized snoring did remind us of a sweet Irish lullaby – Go figure!
