Homemade Irish Cream Recipe

homemade irish cream

This homemade Irish cream is a favorite among family and friends! It tastes really yummy, makes you feel all warm and toasty inside and makes great homemade gifts.

I make this homemade Irish cream every year.  It’s something I look forward to every holiday season and my family and friends do too! In just under 5 minutes you can have your own homemade Irish cream to drink on its own or add a splash to your coffee. Plus, add a cute ribbon and you have your own homemade hostess gift

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups of whiskey
  • 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (optional – you can also use coconut extract instead, either way both are delish!)

Directions:

  • Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  • Using an immersion blender, mix together all ingredients for about 30 seconds. (You can also blend together in a blender). Just be careful not to overmix so as not to whip the cream.
  • Pour into a glass bottle or mason jar. Keep refrigerated.

It’s officially November. Halloween is over and I am ready to start prepping for Christmas and the holiday season. As you all know, I love all things farmhouse decor, Chip & Jo and Target. In case you’ve been living under a rock, yesterday Target released their new Hearth & Hand Holiday Line and your girl is over here like “take all my money!”

Classic jammies for the whole family, holiday greenery, and a cute play kitchen complete with subway tile are a few of my favorite things.
