Bailey’s Ice Cream with Whiskey Caramel Sauce

Bailey's Ice cream with whiskey caramel sauce recipe - sugar and cloth

Homemade Bailey’s ice cream with whiskey caramel sauce is the perfect adult treat to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with. Sure, Shamrock Shakes are fun, but who needs green food coloring when you have Bailey’s…and whiskey!

If you’ve never made ice cream before, this is the perfect recipe to start with. It’s almost fool-proof, relying on just heavy cream, sugar and milk instead of a traditional egg custard base. The result is a silky, creamy ice cream with just a hint of baileys cream. To take this dessert over the top, I, Alex, have included a whiskey caramel sauce to liberally drizzle over.

For a St. Patty’s worthy sundae, layer Bailey’s Ice Cream over chocolate ice cream in a serving bowl, then top it with whiskey caramel sauce, whipped cream and garnishes of your choice. Just as fun as an Irish Car Bomb, but a lot more delicious and you won’t feel near as bad the next day…

Bailey's Ice cream with whiskey caramel sauce recipe - sugar and cloth

Bailey’s Ice Cream

    • Yield: 1 pint

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream
    • 1 cup 2% Milk
    • 3/4 cup Pure cane sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

    Instructions

    • Whisk together the combined ingredients, stirring until the sugar and salt are completely dissolved in the liquid. Place the mixture into the fridge to chill, for at least two hours or up to overnight.
    • Add ingredients to the base of an ice cream maker and churn according to manufacture’s instructions. Adding the alcohol will increase the freezing point, so the ice cream will be similar to soft serve in consistency.
    • Serve immediately or place in a freezer safe container for later.

    Whiskey Caramel Sauce

        Ingredients

        • 1 cup Pure cane sugar
        • 1/4 cup Water
        • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
        • 1 tablespoon Whiskey
        • 1 pinch of salt (optional)

        Instructions

        • Add the sugar and water to a large sauce pan over medium heat. Swirl the pan over the heart source for 15 minutes or until a deep amber color is reached. Watch closely as to not let it burn. The caramel should be a deep golden brown color, any paler and it will not turn into caramel sauce.
        • Once the deep amber color is reached, turn off the burner and remove the sauce pan from the heat. Slowly add in the heavy cream while stirring. Add in the whiskey and salt and place on the still-warm burner for another minute or two, stirring the entire time. By now, the two liquids should have incorporated creating a rich caramel sauce.
        • Transfer to a heat safe container to cool.

                What makes it chocolate? I noticed there were two kinds: one chocolate and what looks like vanilla. I guess my question is, what did you add to it to make it chocolate ice cream?
