Easy 3 ingredient Baileys Whipped Cream recipe is the perfect Irish cream whipped topping for St. Patrick's Day or any day you want a sweet treat.
Baileys Whipped Cream
We LOVE making homemade whipped cream and flavoring it with seasonal flavors. My husband makes a bourbon whipped cream that is epic.
I figured with St. Patrick's Day coming soon I would share this Bailey's Whipped Cream Recipe perfect for topping Irish Coffee or even Bailey's Coffee.
Since we keep getting a ton of snow I think I am going to use it to top my favorite Baileys hot chocolate this week.
OOOH Maybe I need to make an epic ice cream sundae and top it with this flavored whipped cream. There are so many options for ways to use this epic Irish Cream Whipped Cream. Oooh what about on chocolate brownies.
I also think this would be so good on pancakes or waffles. Though I did enjoy it straight from the bowl so you can also do that. LOL!

How to make Bailey's Irish Cream Whipped Cream
Place mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the refrigerator/freezer for a while to get them really cold. This will help the heavy whipping cream whip up.
Add heavy whipping cream and confectioner sugar to mixing bowl and whisk until peaks form.
Slowly pour in Bailey's Irish Cream until mixed in and soft peaks form.
To make a chocolate Baileys whipped cream add in 1.5 tablespoons cocoa powder and combine with the whipping cream as it starts to whip together.
Having cold ingredients and equipment will help the whipping cream whip up perfectly.
Powdered sugar will whip up easier than granulated sugar and blend in to form soft peaks.
You can add in a bit of vanilla extract if you want to make this a bit more vanilla in flavor.
