does anyone know how long this is good for? do the egg yokes make it good for only a couple of days?

Please be very careful when serving anything with raw eggs. You risk illness from Salmonella, among other things. This recipe can be prepared with pasteurized eggs, which come in liquid form in cartons in the refrigerated case at the grocery. This shouldn't alter the taste at all, and there is no risk of illness!

I've been making the Homemade Irish cream for years...my recipe is a bit different, whiskey instead of brandy, coconut extract instead of almond, and whipping cream instead of non-dairy creamer. We call it the "fat maker". LOL...i think I will try the non-dairy this year.

Excellent. I use fat free condensed milk and fat free half & half, so I can really enjoy it knowing most of the fat is out. Adjust liquor to your liking. I give this out at Christmas in a nice bottle.

This is absolutely delicious. I made it for St Patrick's Day and served it in cordial glasses. It goes into my permanent file. The only substitution I made was to use real whipping cream as opposed to the nondairy creamer, and I only added 1 cup of brandy. Again, very good!

What I like best about this recipe is the lack of preservatives...unlike what you find in the popular brand name versions! Just be aware that if you over process it, the cream will start to get lumpy. I find it best to just stir.

This was incredible! Much better than store bought, and so much cheaper. It was so easy to make and adjust to your liking. My husband made 3 batches, each with slightly different amounts of coffee, almond, and chocolate. Each batch was delicious, but slightly unique.

Fatfree half-and-half tastes good in this recipe in place of creamer.
