As you probably have realised Chocolate Fudge is one of our favourite Christmas indulgences but I have a second. I absolutely love Irish Cream Liqueur or Baileys. I only ever get it at Christmas Time and I will enjoy it with coffee on an evening watching Christmas Movies or after dinner with guests when we entertain. Combining the two to create an Easy Chocolate Baileys Fudge Recipe seemed to be perfect and this simple quick recipe is perfect for giving to others as an edible gift this Christmas.

I love making easy fudge recipes and switching from making it in the double boiler to making it in the slow cooker is SO EASY and makes recipes like this possible for kids to make.
