Irish Cream Pots de Creme #ProgressiveEats

These Irish  Cream Pots de Creme spiked with Baileys are the perfect way to end any meal. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, they would be equally as welcome Valentine’s Day or anytime you’re craving a chocolate dessert!

Spiked Irish Cream Pots de Creme

Shhhhh, don’t tell Bill I’m spilling this, but he can never remember the name of this dessert. No matter how many times I make pots de creme, he asks me if they are creme de pots or pots de creme. At least, he knows not to pronounce the “t” in pots. A work in progress.

We just giggle and remind him that a “cream of pot” does not sound as appetizing as the alternative. Plain ol’ Chocolate Pots de Creme are on our regular dessert rotation, so he’s repeated this malapropism over and over, granted, with a twinkle in his eye.

We all love these creamy chocolate custards, but spiked with some Baileys made these Irish cream pots de creme even more delectable! I am a huge fan of the added depth of flavor that a little booze provides these Irish cream pots de creme.

An Easy Special Occasion Dessert

This decadent chocolate custard started in a saucepan and ended in a blender before being distributed into individual serving dishes. I first wondered if I would regret not passing the cooked custard through a sieve, but the time in the blender seemed to dissolve any bits of cooked egg that tend to appear in this type of dessert. The end result was a sublime chocolate custard and a lovely dessert for our family.

Progressive Eats: Cooking with Alcohol and Beer

Welcome to Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a Progressive Dinner Party. This month’s theme is Boozy Cooking and is hosted by Megan Myers who blogs at Stetted. For our Boozy Cooking dinner, we all created recipes using beer, wine, or spirits.

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out. We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.

Check out all the amazing recipes this month:
