Easy Homemade Christmas Baileys

Christmas is the season of giving and there’s no better gift than something you made with love (and alcohol, ha). I’ve been gifting homemade Baileys for years, starting with a year that I totally forgot my co-workers and needed something easy, quick, inexpensive, and special.

The original recipe involved cooking of the pudding with rum. The best part is I could make it any flavor I wanted: chocolate, vanilla, and hazelnut being everyone’s favorite.

This recipe is even easier to make and it still tastes like hazelnut plus a dash of Christmas! It takes about 15 minutes to put together and you’ll have something special for everyone to remember.

Do you think I should start writing poems? I didn’t think so either.  My daughter is really good and clearly, she didn’t get it from me. Sorry, got sidetracked…

So, Christmas time is gourmet time! There are delicacies everywhere waiting to be tasted. Bring this delicious easy homemade Christmas Baileys in decorative bottles to any holiday party and watch it disappear. Bring the recipe too, because you know they’ll be asking you for it.

Pair it up with this sweet cheese ball dip and enjoy being a celebrity for a day. It also makes a perfect gift in combination with these edible Christmas candles!

Since ’tis the season of giving, I’m giving you this FREE 10×8 holiday printable. Watch out for my Friday newsletter (updates from All that’s Jas) in your inbox. It will include matching place cards (picture on the bottom of the post) exclusive to my subscribers.

Happy Holidays!
