Homemade Irish Cream Liqueur and Cookies



An Irish Cream recipe I got from  a wonderful high school friend many many years ago, Francine, thank you, we still enjoy this after 30+ years!

1 cup  heavy cream
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 2/3 cup Irish Whiskey or Vodka
1 teaspoon instant coffee
2 Tablespoons  chocolate syrup any favorite brand (I used Smuckers jar chocolate sauce, ice cream topping)
1 Tablepoon pure vanilla extract
*optional:  2 tablespoons of caramel syrup or ice cream topping for a caramel style Irish Cream(use with the addition of chocolate syrup).

Combine all ingredients in a blender and set on high speed for 30 seconds.

Place in a glass bottle, tightly sealed and refrigerate. Shake before using.
Will keep for up to 2 months.
Irish Coffee Pistachio Shamrock Cookies (Goes great with this after dinner drink!)
