Baileys Chocolate Ice-Cream with Chocolate Sauce

Easy Baileys Marbled Chocolate Ice-Cream with Baileys Chocolate Sauce.

Ice Cream, Sauces | 3rd May 2015 | By

A quick but luscious no-churn ice cream flavoured with Baileys and marbled with dark chocolate. Chocolate sauce with a slug of Baileys adds the finishing touch to. This easy Baileys chocolate ice-cream will make you everyone’s best friend.

Who doesn’t like a drop of Baileys? I know I certainly do. I blame my grandfather. It was one of his favourite tipples which he took particular care to introduce to me at an early age. CT’s rather keen on it too as are many others judging by the 2,300 glasses that are consumed every minute of every day. But it’s not just a nice drink made with a blend of Irish whiskey, fresh cream, vanilla and chocolate essences, oh no. It’s also rather good as a cooking ingredient.

Baileys Chocolate Ice-Cream

When a bottle of Baileys arrived at my door a couple of days ago, it sang to me, seductively, of ice-cream. I’m sure others have come up with the idea of Bailey’s ice-cream, but I’ve never tried it and suddenly I was very keen to do so. My go to ice-cream recipe is a simple one; it consists of two basic ingredients – cream and condensed milk – to which you can add pretty much anything you like.

I’ve adapted the quantities over the years so that it’s not overly sweet and I now feel I have the perfect ratio of cream to condensed milk. One of the many wonders of this quick and easy ice-cream is that there is no need for churning or an ice-cream maker. This makes it accessible to just about everyone.

Baileys Ice Cream

I love to watch the gradual transformation of colours and textures when mixing two flavours together.

Baileys has a particular affinity for chocolate I’ve found and the marbled Baileys and chocolate ice-cream I envisaged had me leaping out of bed and straight into the kitchen. If you don’t believe me, ask CT. My mother is hosting a gathering tomorrow and I hear a whisper that it might just be sunny, so ice-cream could be a welcome contribution. Let’s hope so anyway. And what ice-cream worth its salt couldn’t be improved with a little chocolate sauce?

Baileys Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce

I made a mini tub of ice-cream so that CT and I could have a taster before launching it on the world. My goodness it was good, no, not good, positively addictive! A little Baileys goes a long way and there was no mistaking its presence here. As we finished the ice-cream off so quickly, we were tempted to wolf down the sauce too. But I managed to restrain us both so that a full jug will be accompanying the second serving tomorrow.

  • 100 g dark chocolate (I used 90%)
  • 600 ml double cream
  • 200 ml condensed milk (half a standard tin)
  • 100 ml Baileys
  • 30 g chocolate of choice - chopped

Chocolate Sauce

  • 100 ml double cream
  • 80 g dark chocolate - chopped
  • 50 ml Baileys
  • Dash of water



  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over not quite simmering water (ensure the bowl doesn't touch the water). Leave to cool a little.
  • Meanwhile whip the cream and condensed milk until it nears the soft peak stage.
  • Take out twelve tbsp and stir into the chocolate.
  • Add the Baileys to the cream mixture and whip again until soft peaks form - be careful not to over whip.
  • Stir the chocolate mixture through the Bailey's mixture until the desired marbling effect has been achieved.
  • Spoon into a 1 litre freezer proof container and scatter the chopped chocolate over the top.
  • Cover and freeze for at least two hours.
  • Remove from the freezer 20 minutes before serving.

Chocolate Sauce

  • Heat the cream in a pan with a dash of water until near boiling.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until melted.
  • Stir in the Baileys and test for pourability. If too thick, add another dash of water.


Makes 1 litre (plus a little bit more).
It is recommended that men imbibe no more than 3-4 units of alcohol a day and woman 2-3 units. This ice-cream has a total of 2.7 units (1.8 in the ice-cream and .9 in the sauce), so in the unlikely event of scoffing the whole lot in one go, your daily allowance would not be exceeded.
The darker the chocolate, the less sweet the ice-cream will be.
Small cream cheese containers work well as they fit more easily into the freezer and give just the right portion for two people.

    Gotta love a BIG bottle of Baileys Choclette! I made my recipe with the Original as well as the Chocolat Luxe, which you would love, as it is made with Belgian chocolate!

    What a brilliant idea, ice cream does tend to take away from the sweetness and I love how easy your recipe is.

    • Choclette

      4th May 2015 at 5:25 pm

      Thanks Janice. This no-churn recipe is a real star and it is rather nice with a drop of Baileys.

    This sounds right up my alley! I’m such a lover of Bailey’s. As long as it’s got a good glug of it in a recipe, I’m usually head over heals for it. Your ice cream sounds divine!

    • Choclette

      6th May 2015 at 9:30 am

      In that case, this ice-cream is definitely for you 😉 And it’s dead easy to make too.

    Brilliant idea! I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker to do this too

    • Choclette

      Yes indeed Kerry, there are only so many bits of kit a kitchen can take.

    I think the no churn cream-condensed milk recipe is my most frequently used one these days as it is so quick to knock together! And any alcohol in addition definitely improves the softness no end…..
    With Baileys? Yes please! Chocolate Sauce? With extra Baileys? No hesitation! This may definitely find its way into my freezer (but not for very long) very soon!

    • Choclette

      8th May 2015 at 11:25 am

      As you say Kate, it’s such an easy recipe to use and as long as it isn’t too sweet, it has become my go to ice-cream recipe.
