Amanda's Home Made Baileys

After starting off a batch of sloe gin the other day Amanda decided she wanted to make her own Baileys style creamy liquors. After work today she started it off. The ingredients are:

1x 75cl bottle of Irish whisky
600ml double cream
1.5 tins of evaporated milk
2 tins of condensed milk
2 teaspoons of ground instant coffee granules
250g block of milk chocolate

1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler.

2. Add the melted chocolate to a bowl with a little whisky in. Stir it together to make a chocolaty paste.

3. Add the 1.5 tins of evaporated milk and stir in.

4. Add in the 2 tins of condensed milk and stir.

5. Add all 600ml of double cream and stir again. Then add in the coffee granules. These might clump up a bit, but don't worry about that yet.

6. Pour in the rest of the Irish whisky. Then stir the thing vigorously in til all the coffee has dissolved.

7. Using a ladle move the mixture into some bottles. This recipe makes enough baileys for 3 x 75cl bottles. There was enough left to fill up a little tub. We'll be having this at the weekend :-)

Apparently for best results you should leave this in the fridge for 2 weeks to a month before drinking, but it tastes fine to drink straight away. I had a little earlier, and I'm not joking, it tastes much nicer than shop bought baileys. Don't believe me? Try it. It's so simple to make.
