More About This Recipe

  • From Halloween through New Year’s, nothing gives me more comfort than a nice cold bottle of Irish Creme Liquor.

    It brings back sweet memories of my whole family gathered around my grandfather on Christmas Eve, singing songs and laughing until the early morning hours.

    As the weather gets colder, I search for excuses to sneak the creamy alcohol into various different desserts, cocktails, and even savory dishes!

    It tastes the best in desserts though. Like this Baileys Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting. My roommate took this cake to work with him…and almost got attacked in the hallway for every last slice!

    Just make your cake according to the box instructions, but replace the water with Baileys. As the cake is baking, make your frosting. First, mix peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar.

    Then pour in some heavy cream and vanilla.

    After the cake cools, load on the icing. Yum!
