Baileys Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie

I was browsing Pinterest last week when I came across this delightful recipe from She Wears Many Hats for a Baileys Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie. It had me at Baileys. And chocolate. If you'll remember, I confessed to having quite the affinity for that scrumptious Irish cream. This would pair brilliantly with my morning cup o' Joe. (Who says you can't {responsibly} have boozy pie for breakfast?)

While this would have been extra lovely for Valentine's Day, in my book, every single day that ends in "y" is the perfect day for pie. I am planning to whip this up sometime soon.

Baileys Salted Caramel Chocolate Pie
Makes 8-10 servings.

Ingredients:
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 fluid ounces (4 tablespoons) Baileys® with a hint of Caramel*
  • 1 chocolate cookie pie crust
  • Coarse salt for sprinkling
  • Optional for garnishing: shaved chocolate, caramel sauce for drizzling
Instructions:
  1. Melt chocolate chips according to package directions.
  2. Let cool slightly.
  3. Whip cream and sugar.
  4. When soft peaks begin to form, gradually add Baileys with a hint of Caramel.
  5. Gently mix in the melted chocolate.
  6. Spread mixture into pie crust and sprinkle top with coarse salt.
  7. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
  8. *Substitute other Baileys flavors to create different versions.
  9. This recipe contains no more than 0.6 fl. oz. of alcohol per serving.
And, of course, no post would be complete without a picture of My Funny Valentine (all decked out in her leopard print yoga pants and festive "Walmart special" onesie).


Happiest Monday, Friends!
