A simple splash of Irish cream gives this already-delicious triple chocolate pie an intoxicating upgrade, adding a creamy and slightly bracing (in a good way) flavor contrast.
The key to great roasty Guinness flavor? Reduce it on the stovetop into a concentrated syrup first.
I recently told one of our friends that I've never been to Ikea, and she said, "You're kidding me. In the past couple of years you and Emily have lived in three different apartments with a grand total of six rooms. She dresses very nicely and you...are engaged to someone who dresses very nicely. You two are the very embodiment of half-fashionable faux-poverty, and as such you have most certainly been to Ikea."
DIY Irish cream tastes richer and fresher than the store-bought kind (though it doesn't last as long or look quite as uniform.) It's like the difference between a Chips Ahoy cookie and a freshly baked homemade chocolate chip cookie. Your own batch also will cost you at least 5 dollars less than the packaged stuff.
Irish cream is irresistible. It's creamy and sweet with just the right whiskey kick. The best part about making your own is that you're in control of the flavor. Feel free to play around a bit with the recipe.
