This Baileys Chocolate Fudge is smooth and creamy with a delicious hint of Irish Cream. So easy to make, and the perfect dessert for your New Years Eve Menu.
- 18 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- 1/4 cup Baileys
Line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper or line with aluminium foil and grease lightly.
Using a double boiler, add 1 inch of hot water to the lower pot. If you don't have a double boiler, in a medium saucepan add 1 inch of hot water. Place a large glass bowl over top, ensuring that the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the hot water.
Heat the double boiler over low heat.
Add the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk to the upper pot of your double boiler or the glass bowl. Gently stir as everything melts together.
Once fully melted, remove the the upper pot/glass bowl from the burner and stir in the corn syrup. Then vigorously stir in the Baileys.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and allow to chill in the fridge for 4 hours.
Cut into squares and serve.
Melting the fudge:We recommend using a double boiler for making fudge because it melts the chocolate more evenly. You'll melt together chocolate chips and a can of sweetened condensed milk over low heat. Gently stir to ensure everything melts together smoothly.
Chocolate for fudge:We recommend using semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe because the flavor is a little richer, but you can also use milk chocolate for a creamier fudge or even 50% dark chocolate for an even richer fudge.
Microwave fudge: If you choose to melt the chocolate in the microwave, make sure you do not melt the chocolate for longer than 30 seconds at a time. Once the chocolate "bakes" you will have to start all over.
Storing the fudge: Fudge can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature.
Firmer Fudge: For firmer fudge, store in the fridge.
