It’s Baileys time!!

Irish Cream Icing aka my Baileys Chocolate Glaze

Bailey's Chocolate Glaze

I recently made a no bake Baileys Cheesecake (recipe to be posted very shortly) and when developing that recipe I knew I wanted to incorporate chocolate into it.  I however did not want to have a chocolate crust, nor did I want to just plot chunks of chocolate into the cheesecake itself.  I finally settled on making a Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Glaze, and boy it is amazing!  It is such a delicious combination – I always love having  Baileys Hot Chocolate during the holidays – so incredible, and thought this recipe would be the ‘icing on the cake’ for my cheesecake.  This recipe is so simple and uses only a few ingredients.

Bailey's Chocolate Glaze

You can use my Baileys Chocolate Glaze to ice cupcakes, cakes, loafs, cheesecakes, pies, and dessert bars!  Now for those who are not a fan of the original boozy Baileys you can use Irish Cream or Baileys coffee creamer instead – same great taste minus the alcohol!

Bailey's Chocolate Glaze
  • ⅛ teaspoon instant coffee powder
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup Baileys
  • ½ cup semi sweet choc chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. Place coffee powder, cocoa powder and confectioners sugar into a small saucepan.  Add Bailey’s and stir until cocoa and confectioners sugar are fully dissolved.
  2. Turn stove onto medium low heat.  Add chocolate chips and allow to sit in pot for a minute or so, or until chips begin to slightly melt.
  3. Stir chocolate chips until fully melted and mixture is smooth and combined.
  4. Turn off stove and add in butter.  Stir in butter until fully melted and combined.
  5. Allow glaze to cool for a few minutes before icing your dessert.
Glaze can be placed into air tight container and left in the fridge for up to a week.
Substitute Baileys with non alcoholic Irish Cream/ Baileys coffee creamer
