  • 1/2 cup Bailey’s or other Irish Cream Liqueur or Irish Cream-flavored coffee creamer
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup or corn syrup
  • 2 oz. semisweet chocolate chopped, or about 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • Whisk together the Bailey's, cocoa powder, and brown rice or corn syrup in a small pot until smooth.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 3-5 minutes, until thickened slightly.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until smooth.
  • Cool slightly and use immediately, or store in the refrigerator. It will be thick once chilled, so if you want it pourable, you may need to warm it slightly.


  • Recipe yields about 1 cup of fudge sauce.
