Homemade Baileys - Video

Two Christmases ago I posted a recipe for homemade baileys on a food blog, and to this day it is still on of the most visited posts. 
I still get questions about the recipe, so I thought I would make a video (my very first one) on how I make it and also post the recipe on this blog as well.

Makes about 750ml

500ml Lactofree whole milk
125g sugar
½ teaspoon salt
15g dark dairy free chocolate
250ml Lactofree cream
2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
250-300ml Whisky (depending on how strong you like it).

Add the milk, sugar and salt in a pan, put on a medium heat, and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved. Cook for about 30-40 minutes, stirring every few minutes. You are looking for a consistency where it is a bit thicker than cream, and when it just seems to coat the spoon. Take the pan off the heat and add the chocolate, and stir until it is completely melted and incorporated into the milk. Let it cool completely in the fridge (it will thicken up a lot more when cooled).
When cooled add to a mixing bowl and whisk for a few seconds, then add cream and whisk it together for a few minutes until it thickens a bit.
Add the other ingredients and whisk until the instant coffee powder has dissolved and the consistency is thick and creamy like Baileys.
Run the mixture through a sieve and pour into a sterilised bottle. Store in the fridge. It will keep for about 1-2 weeks, but give it a good shake before serving.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas
