25 Easy Baileys Irish Cream Desserts

Baileys Irish Cream is delicious and decadent enough on its own, but it has nothing on these 25 Baileys Irish Cream desserts

Most of these desserts are chocolate- or coffee-based, although a few options here don’t include either of those things.

Additionally, most of them – chocolate- or coffee-based or not – are relatively easy to make.

In fact, the only difficult thing about these is choosing which one to try first. 

If you’re in the mood for something overly indulgent, try the Baileys fudge or the French silk pie with an oatmeal crust.

Go with the Irish cream dip or cupcakes if you want something lighter. 

Either way, I’m sure you’ll find something on this list of Baileys Irish Cream desserts that you’re sure to love. 

1. Baileys Cookies and Cream Parfaits

These 20-minute, no-cook parfaits are layer upon layer of yumminess.

They’re chocolatey, creamy, and feature alternating textures of pillowy softness and crunchy crumbled cookies.

They’re super scrumptious, lovely to look at, and everyone around you is sure to want one.

2. Burger King Hershey’s Sundae Pie

Okay, so this recipe doesn’t actually call for Baileys, but if you add half a cup to the chocolate pudding filling, you can turn this already delicious dessert into a fun and boozy summer treat. 

It’s another layered dessert that’s hard not to love.

You’ll start with a crunchy chocolate pie crust; then, add a smooth and silky cream layer, followed by the chocolate pudding mix. 

Top it all off with whipped cream and chocolate curls (or chips), and you’re all set.  

3. Baileys Cheesecake

Baileys cheesecake mixes the rich sweetness of chocolate ganache with the tanginess of cream cheese and piles it all on top of a crunchy Oreo crust.

It takes almost no time to prepare, but you’ll need to let it chill for several hours before you serve it, so don’t wait until the last minute to make it.

4. Baileys Mini Cheesecake

These are almost the same cheesecake as above, only in miniature. Each one is perfectly sized to be one to two bites of pure bliss. 

Please don’t blame me if you end up eating more cheesecake this way than you would if it were regular-sized, though.

With these, it’s hard to stop once you get started.

5. Baileys Irish Cream Tiramisu

Featuring the typical tiramisu ingredients of ladyfingers, cocoa powder, espresso, and more, Baileys Irish Cream tiramisu substitutes Baileys for traditional Kahlua or rum. 

It gives it a richer, bolder flavor and kicks the taste of the coffee up a notch. If you’re a fan of sweet treats and coffee, this one will be a quick favorite. 

6. Baileys Cupcakes

Baileys cupcakes are one of the few non-chocolate-based desserts on the list (aside from the cocoa that’s in the Baileys, of course). 

The cupcakes are light, fluffy, and moist, and they have a delightful buttery, vanilla flavor that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without weighing you down. 

The Swiss meringue buttercream is pretty rich, but compared to other options here, this is one of the lighter options. 

7. Brownie Sundae with Baileys Sauce

Brownies, ice cream, dark chocolate shavings, and Baileys Irish Cream – do you need to know anything else about this overly indulgent brownie sundae to realize that you’re going to love it? 

I didn’t think so. 

8. Baileys Cheesecake-Marbled Brownies

I love the gorgeous, swirled look of marbled brownies; they’re just so pretty and unique.

If you also love the contrasting tastes of chocolate and cheesecake, these brownies are the thing for you. 

They take a little time to make (25 minutes of prep, 40 to cook), but the outcome is so lovely and tasty, they’re worth the effort. 

They’re a sweet and tangy treat that’s really hard to beat. 

9. Baileys Irish Cream Coffee Bars

These chewy, gooey chocolate bars are mouth-wateringly delicious and have a wonderfully fudgy consistency and a smooth, silky coffee topping that’s just short of addictive. 

I’m not going to lie and say that they’re healthy, but sometimes what’s healthy has to take a back seat to what’s incredible, and that’s certainly the case with these. 

10. French Silk Pie with Oatmeal Cookie Pie Crust

This silky, velvety smooth pie combines an oatmeal cookie crumb crust with a fluffy layer of Baileys cream, heavy whipping cream, and bittersweet chocolate. 

It’s a smooth, simple dessert, but it’s no less delicious for all that.

Plus, the distinct textures – crunchy and crumbly to soft and silky – is a delight to the senses. 

11. Baileys Chocolate Mousse 

With just a few common ingredients, you can whip up this Baileys-infused chocolate mousse in 10 minutes. It’s fluffy, soft, and full of chocolatey goodness. 

If you’re looking for something quick, easy to make, and not too over-the-top sweet, this one is an excellent option.

12. Bailey’s Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Here’s another excellent chocolate mousse option, and this one contains avocados!

You won’t really taste them, and it’s not harder to make than the other mousse recipe above. 

This version, though, has more protein. 

13. Baileys Fudge

This four-ingredient Baileys fudge takes 5 minutes to make and requires absolutely no cooking. Simply melt the chocolate chips in the microwave.

Then, add your sweetened condensed milk, Baileys, and vanilla extract.

Once everything is mixed correctly and in the pan, stick it in the fridge and let it harden. Easy, peasy, and oh, so boozy.

14. Baileys Irish Cream Cake

This is the Baileys Irish Cream version of a rum cake, and it’s spectacular. It has a dense but fluffy texture with a slightly thicker crumb on the exterior. 

However, thanks to the double-dose of Baileys in the batter and the glaze, it’s supremely moist – almost juicy – and overflowing with flavor. 

Best of all, you’ll use a boxed cake mix, so it’s insanely easy to make.

15. Baileys Chocolate Cream Pie

One look at this super chocolatey pie will show you that there’s a lot going on in every single slice, and the 45-minute prep time reinforces that idea. 

So yes, it takes a bit of work, but it looks fantastic and tastes even better, so it’s worth it in the end. 

The crunchy Oreo pie crust lays the foundation for the creamy, silky smooth Baileys filling, and the whipped cream topping (which also includes Baileys) makes it extra rich and decadent. 

It’s a sugar high waiting to happen, but you’ll enjoy the ride. 

16. Baileys Chocolate Truffles

Truffles are such a delicate, exotic sweet treat, and they always make people smile. 

These Baileys chocolate truffles, though, are even more exciting than regular truffles because each one has a bold, boozy Baileys filling. 

They’re easy to make, too, requiring only five ingredients plus whatever toppings you like. 

17. Baileys Affogato

Affogato is an Italian classic, but outside of Italy, it’s not nearly as well-known as tiramisu or cannoli.

If you’ve never had it, it’s more of a dessert drink than a proper dessert. 

To make it, you’ll combine ice cream and espresso – that’s all it takes.

Of course, we’ll go the extra mile and add two ounces of Baileys to ours, as well. 

It gives it that little extra kick, but it also gives it a slightly sweeter, more cocoa-like flavor that complements the espresso very well.

18. Homemade Chocolate Pudding with Baileys

Chocolate pudding is always a nice treat, but it’s even better when it’s homemade (and when it contains Baileys Irish Cream). 

All you’ll need is sugar, cornstarch, milk, eggs, heavy cream, Baileys, pure vanilla extract, and semisweet chocolate.

It takes 15 minutes to pull together and tastes incredible. 

Add a dollop of whipped cream and some chocolate sprinkles or shavings for a little extra decadence.

19. Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Is there any dessert more comforting and heartwarming than homemade chocolate chip cookies? If there is, I can’t think of what it might be. 

Chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate “coming home” food, and you can make yours even softer, moister, and melt-in-your-mouthier by adding three tablespoons of Baileys.

They’re so buttery and chocolatey, and they’ll practically fall apart in your hands. Mmmmm.

20. Baileys Tres Leches Cake

Tres leches cake is another super moist, melt-in-your-mouth dessert that’s so light and milk-soaked, it’ll make you groan with pleasure. 

It takes only an hour or so to make, and like every dessert on this list, you can enhance the flavor and the overall moistness by adding an ample dash of Baileys. 

21. Caramel Baileys Pound Cake

If you’re a pound cake lover, then you probably already know all about the dense crumb, spongy texture, and mildly sweet flavor. 

However, this one takes things up a notch by adding Baileys Irish Cream to the batter and a sweet and sticky caramel glaze to the top. 

It’s unbelievably sweet and rich, so don’t be surprised if a small piece is enough to satisfy your sugar cravings for a week. 

22. Baileys Crème Brûlée

There’s just something so satisfying about cracking the top of a crème brûlée to get to the pudding-like custard beneath the surface. 

Unfortunately, many people never find out because they’re afraid to try their hand at making crème brûlée.

Hopefully, this simple, five-ingredient recipe is enough to change their minds.

All you’ll need is double cream, egg yolks, Baileys, caster sugar, and brown sugar. 

It takes 10 minutes of prep work. What are you waiting for? Try it!

23. Baileys Irish Cream Dip

You can whip up this delightfully thick and creamy dip in just 10 minutes.

All you’ll need is heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, Baileys, vanilla extract, and chocolate syrup.

It’s sweet and fun, and you’ll get a nice, buzzy feeling from the Baileys.

Serve it with graham crackers, cookies, vanilla wafers, or fruit. It’s the perfect party dip for all occasions. 

24. No-Bake Baileys Irish Cream Cookie Balls

If you’ve ever had no-bake Oreo balls, these are similar; only you’ll use crushed vanilla wafers instead of Oreos, and you’ll add a generous dose of Baileys to each one.

The recipe also calls for using candy melts, but you could substitute your favorite baker’s chocolate or almond bark if you prefer. 

25. Baileys Brownies

These brownies are so thick and fudgy that no one will believe you made them with boxed brownie mix. They’ll taste far too good to be boxed. 

Plus, the buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache add a whole lot of extra oomph to the standard boxed mix.

So it’s almost like they’re from scratch anyway once you get all that added.
