Chocolate and Irish Cream. They go together like PB & J, Ross and Rachel, a wink and a smile… My point is, certain combinations just work. And the flavors in this smooth, chocolatey Baileys Martini recipe complement each other in such a beautiful, we’re-just-meant-to-be kinda way.
Baileys is one of those fan favorite liqueurs that blends deliciously in anything from coffee to dessert. The popular Irish cream can add such a rich and creamy texture to even your most boring cup of coffee. Try this Salted Caramel Irish Coffee and you’ll totally see what I mean.
I never met an Irish cream recipe I didn’t love, but one of my very favorite Baileys combinations is with chocolate. Serve up a slice of this Baileys Poke Cake at your next backyard picnic.
