Easy Baileys Irish Cream Dessert Recipe

Make Baileys Pots de Creme For St. Patrick's Day

I recently organized my recipe collection, so when I decided to make a St. Patrick's Day dessert, I looked to my archives to see what recipe gems I could find. I had my heart set on the Irish cream chocolate mousse cake I made for my half birthday four years ago. However, I didn't have a lot of time and wanted an innovative, but easy dessert. Luckily I came across this recipe for Baileys pots de creme! I cut it out of the San Francisco Chronicle in 2007, but never got around to making it. Until now. Although it needs to chill overnight, this luscious and creamy dessert is super quick to put together. It's not too sweet and the flavor of Baileys and coffee blend scrumptiously. It's the sort of addictive dessert that you can't get enough of; I found myself shamelessly licking the rich mixture off the side of the bowl. To get the ridiculously simple — there's only five ingredients! — technique keep reading.
