Bailey’s Irish Cream Mousse

One day my wife asks me to make something that would use up these chocolate dessert cups that were leftover from a previous recipe.

Making a mousse was the first thing that came to mind. And since I still had a bit of Baileys Irish Cream left, it was a no brainer to make a Baileys Irish Cream Mousse!

The beauty of this mousse is that it is so versatile you can use it for many different kinds of desserts.

As with all recipes that contain alcohol, be mindful that it’s possible that not all of the alcohol may burn off during the cooking process. You might want to keep these away from the kids just to be safe!

    I love cooking and trying new recipes. Decided to try these Irish Cream mousse cups. They were delicious. Kept well in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Could not have asked for a better simple recipe on a hot summer day.
