Sometimes, you just need to make yourself a quick treat. This definitely qualifies. There are some shortcuts involved, and depending on what you keep in your pantry/fridge, you may not have it on hand right away, but the end result is fantastic. Bailey’s and chocolate? Hell yeah. Make it into a pie form, and really, there is literally no way you can go wrong with this.
Bailey’s Chocolate Pie
Lasts 6 lunches as a dessert
- 6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 c whipping cream
- 1 T sugar
- 2 oz (aka .25 c) Bailey’s, any flavor
- 1 pre-made chocolate pie crust (you can make your own, but honestly, some days you’re just lazy)
Melt your chocolate chips according to the directions on the package (typically, 1 minute for a 6 oz package, stop it halfway through to stir it to prevent burning). Set them to the side.
Combine your whipped cream and sugar, and mix with an electric mixer for about five minutes on low, until it gets stiffer and peaks form. Once that happens, mix in your melted chocolate and Bailey’s, until combined.
Then, spoon the mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate overnight, until the chocolate Baileys’ mixture thickens.
And then, enjoy the chocolate boozy pie goodness.
