‘Tis the season for baking and warms beverages, right?! Five Farms Irish Cream is the perfect addition for both of these. It’s made with the richest dairy cream, adding a smooth rich flavor to baking and drinks. Five Farms is a true-farm-to-table product and is crafted with fresh cream and Irish Whiskey within 48 hours of collection from the farm. And I mean- how cute is the bottle too!?
Here are a couple easy recipes that feature the rich creaminess of Five Farms Irish Cream. These would be the perfect addition to a family gathering or party this holiday season! I always hate having leftovers from recipes so both recipes also utilize a lot of the same ingredients so you don’t waste anything!
Chocolate Chunk Brownies with Irish Cream Frosting
Here’s what you’ll need:
· 1 box of your favorite boxed brownie mix
· 3-4 cups of powdered sugar
· 2 sticks of room temperature butter
· Chopped walnuts
· Whipped Cream
· Caramel sauce
· 1 TBS vanilla extract
Start by preparing the brownies per the instruction on the box ( I added a splash of Irish Cream in the brownie mixture- but not too much or you will throw off the consistency). I made mine in a 9×9 size pan lined with parchment paper. Once the brownies have completely cooled remove them from the pan and start preparing the frosting.
Whip the room temperature butter for 30 seconds in a mixer. Add in the vanilla and 3 TBS of Five Farms Irish Cream. Slowly add in the powdered sugar ½ cup at a time. After the first cup add in 3 squirts of canned whipped cream (trust me on this part- it helps make the frosting fluffy and takes it to an all-new level!) Keep adding the powdered sugar until the frosting is light and fluffy. I ended up using about 3.5 cups but depending on the consistency of your butter it can require more or less. If you add too much and need to loosen it, you can always add another splash of Irish Cream.
Apply a thick layer of frosting to the brownies, drizzle with caramel sauce and top with chopped walnuts.
Brownies are the truest form of comfort. Happy Baking!
Irish Cream Hot Cocoa
4 simple Ingredients!
· Your favorite Hot Cocoa mix
· Whipped Cream
· Caramel Sauce
I made a batch of hot cocoa on the stove top, but you could also just make one glass in the microwave. Start by heating the hot cocoa mixture in a saucepan on the stove (I made 3 packets and added a little extra water.) Once the cocoa is hot- add in 1 shot of Irish Cream per cup (so I added 3). Pour the hot cocoa into your mug, top with plenty of whipped cream and drizzle with caramel sauce.
I mean- what’s better than adult hot cocoa anyway?!
