Recipe by  Bruce "Werewolf" McLaren

“This end product is a little lighter, and the recipe is a little more in-depth then some of the other recipes available. It will allow you to tailor some of the ingredients more to your taste. There have been many variations of this liqueur, but this one is the most accurate to store brands of Irish cream. It is also the most flexible. Store brands do not use Hershey's® chocolate syrup in their recipe. This one should have a better consistency and taste a little more proper to the famous brand 'B' from Ireland if followed directly. You be the judge.”

I made this for a dinner party with 2 other homemade liqueurs. This is the only one I don't have left overs of and the others were good too. People put it on ice cream, angel food cake, in hot cocoa, coffee, and drank it straight. I never have sweetened condensed milk or chocolate syrup on hand so I appreciated that I could make this entire recipe without buying special ingredients. Only change, I didn't have Irish whiskey so I used Kentucky whiskey. I will make this again. I did not put the coconut in, by the way.
