Step 3: Melt the Chocolate & Make Cream Mixture

Create a double boiler by placing a metal proof bowl over a pan with simmering water. The temperature should be medium low so the chocolate doesn't burn. Place the remaining sugar & cream in a pot next to your double boiler.Gently stir over medium low heat.

Add the chocolate chips and two tsp of the cream to the double boiler.. Stir gently until the chips melt. Next, add a couple tsp. of the sugar cream mixture to the chocolate chips. Continue to add cream until the chocolate mixture is thin in consistency. Remove from heat.

Continue to stir the sugar/cream mixture until all of the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
<p>welp. I put the 3 cups of water in the recipe. I believe that should have been the water for the double boiler. Written instructions would have been helpful. Just going off the pictures leaves room for error. I've never seen a recipe that had you measure the water out for the double boiler. So I'm going to try to save it by simmering it and making a reduction. </p>
<p>Not intuitively obvious, further below the ingredients is a &quot;Next&quot; button that won't show up unless you scroll down further. The 3 cups of water are for making the coffee concentrate.</p><p>I hope you were able to salvage it.</p>
<p>Hi all,</p><p>I'm about to make this Bailey's.</p><p>I have some question, please help me to understand.</p><p>Recipe ask for 5.5oz of coffee beans ans 1oz of Chocolate chips.</p><p>Is that &quot;oz&quot; mean US liquid oz (volume) or Ounces as mass (weight).</p><p>I'm really confused.</p>
Hi, thanks for the recipe, it looks great. We are just making the chocolate essence, and I can't help but notice that your masion jar has something else in it that looks like vanilla beans. Could you let us know what that is? Thanks so much!!
I was hosting a party for 60-something guests and discovered that I only had one bottle of Bailey's left and the liqueur-store had just closed!! <br>THANK GOD for instructables and for authors like you!! Emergency-solutions at it's best! <br> <br>Best thing is that it didn't take all that long to make and no one could tell the difference :D <br> <br>Once again, many thanks!!
Your welcome! I'm glad it all worked out!
YUM! Thanks for posting this! I've tried a recipe with egg in it. It tasted fine served over ice, but it couldn't be added to coffee (the smell of egg overpowered the coffee). I'll definitely be trying this recipe!
I just made the recipe and it is exceptional! Thanks for putting this up. It will be on my list of great desserts in the future.
So glad you liked it!
Looks delicious! I didn't see a quantity listed of coffeebeans. Do you know how many tablespoons or cups to use for that amount of coffee?
Thanks! I measured out 5.5 oz of beans, so about a cup and a half. This recipe makes just over 26oz of Bailey's.
This sounds good! I got a really good recipe from my aunt and uncle for home made Irish cream a while back, but lost it, and now they live on a boat and are impossible to get a hold of. I've been thinking about trying some other recipes, perhaps I'll give this one a shot!
I definitely recommend this recipe. It's really, really good and the ingredients are natural.
LOL &quot;ghetto chocolate syrup&quot; that's funny. You should write a cookbook and put it on Amazon. You could self publish it in ebook format. I get the impression you have a great sense of humor that would complement it well. You write it and I will buy it. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing what you will come up with next. Have a great weekend.
I've always wanted to write a cookbook. I wish I had the time. Maybe when my little one starts school. I'm glad you get my humor. ;) Have a great weekend too!
