Bailey's fudge: Delicious, salted Bailey's fudge recipe with chocolate and Irish Cream whiskey.
Line an 8-inch square baking pan with lightly greased parchment paper or non-stick foil.
In a large bowl, combine the whiskey and confectioner's sugar with a whisk until the mixture is very smooth.
In a microwave-safe bowl, place the chocolate chips. Melt at 70 percent power for 90 seconds in the microwave. Stir, using the residual heat to melt the chocolate chips. Continue to microwave, if needed, at 30 second, then 15 second intervals.
Alternatively, you may set the bowl of chocolate chips over a saucepan of simmering water to melt the chocolate.
Scrape the chocolate into the liquor and sugar mixture. Stir very well. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and smooth evenly.
Sprinkle salt (if using) over the fudge.
Chill the fudge until well set, about 2 hours. Cut into squares.
Combining melted chocolate with liquid (in this case, booze) can be risky. The chocolate can seize and thicken too quickly. To prevent this from happening, make sure to use room temperature alcohol and do NOT overheat the chocolate. Melt the chocolate slowly, using the residual heat as much as possible to fully melt the chocolate chips. Let the chocolate cool slightly before mixing in to the liquor and sugar mixture.
