Irish Cream Ice Cream

Recipe by  

"I LOVE Irish cream ice cream, so when I got my own ice cream maker I went looking for a recipe to duplicate it. To my horror after an extensive search of the internet I could only fine one, and it was WAY to large for my 2-quart maker. So I came up with one of my own. The result was a surprisingly good substitute for the expensive brand! Because of the liqueur it takes a bit longer to harden than the recipes without liqueur, but the wait is worth it!"

This was great! To cut down the fat a little, I used 4 cups of half & half instead of 2 cups half & half, 2 cups heavy whipping cream. Thanks for the recipe.

This has amazing flavor. The consistency was a little too icy and very hard to scoop. I will have to experiment with this further to see if I can change that. Thanks for sharing a delicious ice cream!

This recipe was delicious! The brown sugar really gives it a richer flavor. I used whole milk instead of half and half, but I don't think it would have made a noticeable difference. Will definitely make it again!

Amazing. A wonderful companion to a "girls night out".

YUMMY!! I used 1 cup of 2% milk and 3 cups of heavy cream as I didn't have half-and-half. My only other change was to use vanilla bean paste in place of vanilla extract. This is as close to sticking to the recipe that I could get without running to the store. I packaged it in a freezer container and presented it to my mother for Mother's Day along with a batch of homemade ice cream cones from this site. She absolutely LOVED it! How do I know it was good? Don't tell….I snuck a scoop! I will be making this again soon. Thank you Brandee for sharing such a YUMMY recipe!

Just a thought...try adding 2 cups International Delights Irish Cream and only 1/8 cup Irish cream liqueur. Of course sub out the Half-and-Half
