Original Baileys Irish Cream is a combination of fresh cream, eggs, chocolate and Irish whiskey, and it's such a natural with chocolate! I love Baileys in coffee or hot cocoa, but it really takes this dark chocolate cake and icing to a new level! And if you like a little variety, you can substitute Baileys Chocolate Cherry Liqueur (for a chocolate and cherry flavor), Baileys Salted Caramel or Baileys Vanilla Cinnamon Liqueur for something different. I love Baileys Chocolate Mint as well, but I haven't been able to find that lately - but it is perfect in this cake!
From start to finish, this frosted cake can be cooling on your kitchen counter in thirty minutes, so it really is perfect when folks drop by and you need to whip something up fast!
Hope you get a chance to make this and share with your family and friends!
