Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Glaze

It’s Baileys time!!

Irish Cream Icing aka my Baileys Chocolate Glaze

Bailey's Chocolate Glaze

I recently made a no bake Baileys Cheesecake (recipe to be posted very shortly) and when developing that recipe I knew I wanted to incorporate chocolate into it.  I however did not want to have a chocolate crust, nor did I want to just plot chunks of chocolate into the cheesecake itself.  I finally settled on making a Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Glaze, and boy it is amazing!  It is such a delicious combination – I always love having  Baileys Hot Chocolate during the holidays – so incredible, and thought this recipe would be the ‘icing on the cake’ for my cheesecake.  This recipe is so simple and uses only a few ingredients.

You can use my Baileys Chocolate Glaze to ice cupcakes, cakes, loafs, cheesecakes, pies, and dessert bars!  Now for those who are not a fan of the original boozy Baileys you can use Irish Cream or Baileys coffee creamer instead – same great taste minus the alcohol!

  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  • Place coffee powder, cocoa powder and confectioners sugar into a small saucepan.  Add Bailey’s and stir until cocoa and confectioners sugar are fully dissolved.
  • Turn stove onto medium low heat.  Add chocolate chips and allow to sit in pot for a minute or so, or until chips begin to slightly melt.
  • Stir chocolate chips until fully melted and mixture is smooth and combined.
  • Turn off stove and add in butter.  Stir in butter until fully melted and combined.
  • Allow glaze to cool for a few minutes before icing your dessert.


Glaze can be placed into air tight container and left in the fridge for up to a week.
