Another Bailey’s recipe, really? Oh but dear reader, this is Chocolate Orange Bailey’s. My name is Rebecca, and I have a Bailey’s problem! Well, technically the problem is that I can’t drink it as it’s packed with loads of yummy cream. Rebecca and cream do not like each other anymore, more’s the pity.
Other flavour version from this Chocolate Orange Bailey’s
You may have seen my original Homemade Delicious Dairy Free Bailey’s Liqueur Recipe which was posted a while back and since then I’ve got the bug. Every time Bailey’s bring out a limited edition I make my mission to duplicate it in flavour but made dairy free. I’ve already created a Pumpkin Spice Bailey’s (perfect for Halloween and Thanks Giving). Admittedly I’ve yet to make the Strawberries & Cream version and this year they bought out the Salted Caramel limited edition Bailey’s – damn you, damn you to helllllll!
Oh well never mind, back to the drawing board I go, it’s a tough life making and trialling new Bailey’s flavours – hic!
How easy is it to make Chocolate Orange Bailey’s
Very easy. next question.
Okay I joke but once I’d perfected the dairy free version in November 2017 I knew that it would be flexible enough to create exciting new flavours. Then life got in the way, seasons came and went and let’s face it, Bailey’s is kind of a Christmas thing isn’t it? Well, we’re well and truly on the final countdown for Christmas now and my taste buds are going wild for Irish cream. and now I’ve compensated for my loss that is Chocolate Orange…oh how I miss Terry!
Depending on how much of a zing you want to your orange notes you can simply add an extra alcoholic punch in the form of Cointreau (don’t mind if I do) or stick to natural flavours. I’ve noticed since perfecting this recipe that Choc Shot have brought out a Spiced Orange Chocolate Shot which would be an exciting addition instead of the original orange chocolate sauce.
So here we are, my deliciously perfect Chocolate Orange Bailey’s, thick, creamy and really too good to share. Did I say that, ooh naughty me!
A deliciously rich and creamy Irish Cream that's gluten free and dairy free too, nobody need miss out this Christmas, perfect for a gift...or enjoy all to yourself! This recipe make 1 litre of Bailey's.
- 400 ml tin Coconut Milk needs to be 70% or over in coconut extract
- 200 g Caster Sugar
- 250 ml Whisky
- 350 ml Soya Milk
- 150 ml Soya Cream
- 3 tbsp Choc Shot Orange Choc Shot if you can get it
- 1 large orange
- 1-2 tsp Cointreau optional
- Tip the contents of the tinned coconut milk into a large saucepan.
- Add the 200g caster sugar and stir to combine, the liquid may appear lumpy unless you buy the creamed milk version, don't worry if it is lumpy.
grate the rind from the orange then cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice, add the rind and juice to the saucepan
Turn the hob onto full heat and stir until all the coconut lumps have melted, then leave to boil for 20 minutes.
- Stir occasionally as the liquid reduces. You want to keep the liquid at a rapid/rolling boil stage (bubbles rolling into the centre of the pan from the edges)
Remove the pan from the heat after 20 minutes, pour into a jug through a sieve to remove orange peel and set on a window sill to cool.
This makes roughly 250-300ml of condensed ‘milk’ once it’s reduced.
Simply add all other ingredients to a blender (including the extra boost of orange flavour with Cointreau if you like)
- Add the cooled condensed 'milk' and blend.
- Pour into a 1ltr container, it should just fit perfectly to the top of the bottle, if not I top it up with soya milk or whisky (it depends on how naughty I’m feeling) Pop in the fridge and serve over ice when cooled.
This will keep in the fridge for well over a week...Hahaha, as if it will last that long!
Also you may notice that the cream/soya milk ratio is different to my usual Bailey's recipe, this is because the citrus thickens the liqueur so less cream is necessary.
