I have set a new challenge for myself, ‘If I can make it, why buy it.” I think that this is much healthier, now I know exactly what is in my food and know it is not packed full of food colorings or preservatives.
Below is a recipe I have been using of Irish Cream. The best thing is you can make it stronger if you want to or more chocolaty or more coffee-y!
Homemade Irish Cream
- 2 cups heavy cream [470 ml]
14 oz. can Sweet Condensed Milk [397 grams]
1 1/4 cups whisky, or you can mix it up with Brandy, Rum and Bourbon to clean out the cabinet if you need too [290ml]
2 Tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Mix everything together very well. Store in air tight bottle overnight to allow flavors to blend. Then you can drink!
