Chocolate Irish Cream Fudge recipe

Irish cream liquor is one of the most decadent liquors around and it sure makes for deliciously rich fudge. Remember that there are many versions of Irish liquors in the supermarket today, including toffee flavour, coffee flavour, and mint chocolate flavour, so feel free to use any one of those liquors instead of the more traditional flavour.


  • 500g plain chocolate
  • 175g white chocolate
  • 350g caster sugar
  • 350g mixed chopped nuts
  • 250ml Irish cream
  • 50g butter


  1. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.

  2. Set up a double boiler, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water to stop the chocolate from becoming grainy.

  3. Melt the chocolates and butter together until you have a smooth mixture.

  4. Add the sugar and mix well. Once the sugar has dissolved, stir in the Irish cream and the mixed nuts.

  5. Spread the mixture into the baking tin and leave to cool.

This fudge has a wonderful truffle type texture, making it ideal to give away to those with a sweet tooth. This recipe makes around 24 portions, but it doesn’t last as well as some other fudges so don’t make too much of it unless you plan to eat it all!

Chocolate Irish Cream Fudge Review by Naomi on 13th December 2012:

Best fudge I have ever made. Tastes very nice with Foxes Classic bars sprinkled on top and I prefer to use chopped hazelnuts instead of mixed nuts!
