Really quick and easy recipe for Baileys  Fudge. Made using the microwave, condensed milk, chocolate, Baileys Irish cream and sprinkles for a delicious truffle like sweet dessert treat.

Pile of 3 pieces of easy baileys fudge and other pieces on white background with green sprinkles.

Homemade sweet treats make such a thoughtful Christmas gift. But at this time of year, who has time to get busy rolling truffle balls?! Not me. So, homemade sweets are even better when they are secretly super easy. Shhhh, I won’t tell anyone if you don’t!

I pack the pieces of Microwave Fudge, fresh from the fridge, into little bags like these cellophane bags (from Amazon). This and tying them with some Christmas ribbon adds a special something to make them feel like a real gift.

I always make them at the end of term for George and Harriet’s teachers. With the new addition of Baileys this year I’m sure they will go down a treat.

I’ve got quite a fudge repertoire now if you fancy a look Basic Microwaveable FudgePeanut Butter Fudge, Rolo Fudge and Cookies and Cream Fudge. This Microwavable fudge is so easy the world is your oyster with all the different flavours on offer!

The basic recipe for this Baileys Chocolate Fudge is so simple, just chocolate and condensed milk. You can cook this in a microwave or a slow cooker. Of course it’s SO much quicker in a microwave though.

Just cook it for 30 seconds, two or 3 times, beat really well and pour into a lined dish. Refrigerate overnight and there you have it, delicious creamy microwave fudge.



The basic ingredients for this Baileys Chocolate Fudge differ from traditional fudge as you’re not caramelising sugar to set the fudge. The chocolate sets the fudge and the condensed milk adds the sweetness and texture. Be sure to use condensed milk, not evaporated milk or ready made caramel.



There doesn’t seem to be any hard and fast rules on this, but I’ve kept Baileys Chocolate Fudge in the fridge for a week and it’s been absolutely fine. It will go really quite firm, so just let it soften a little before eating.

  • I used my favourite Callebaut chocolate for this recipe. This chocolate is just amazing, it melts so well and really makes a difference to any recipe. When you buy it in bulk (1kg bags at a time) from Amazon it works out about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment I think as it really does make SUCH a difference.
  • Make sure that you do use baking paper (or parchment as it’s sometimes called) to line the tin. (I like this one, available on Amazon: Bacofoil Baking Parchment.)



  • I used half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate in the fudge this time, it is really personal preference. Using all milk chocolate gives a really creamy flavour, where as dark chocolate provides a delicious contrast to the sweetness of the Baileys Irish cream.
  • This Baileys Chocolate Fudge is kept stable by being chilled. Keep it in the fridge until you need it and it you’re giving it away, suggest that the lucky recipients keep it chilled too.

    Just made this for the first time and gave it out to friends and family. Everyone loved it! Although they said they couldn’t taste the Baileys they said it was a delicious dark chocolate fudge and asked for more. I feel I may have done something wrong to not get the taste of the Baileys through so will have to keep making it until I do. Oh well!😆

    Delicious! So easy. I’ve been looking for a way to use up some Baileys for a while. So glad I found this. How long will it keep in the fridge (I know, it will be eaten fast!) as I wonder if I can make it well ahead of Christmas. Or would it freeze and defrost ok do you know?
    Thank yoj!
