Baileys Chocolat Luxe Liqueur with Ice-cream and Crushed Mint Biscuits
This is mightily good stuff and this smooth chocolatey liqueur is pretty much a dessert by itself. Chocolat Luxe is a combination of the original Baileys Irish Cream and Belgian chocolate that apparently took three years to perfect and is the first-ever combination of real chocolate and liqueur.
Try it served over ice, or try the following recipe with vanilla bean ice-cream and mint biscuits. Of course I had to perfect this recipe too, and try it several times, not that you can go wrong with the amounts, but it doesn’t hurt to try it out several times anyway!
I have heard that the Chocolat Luxe is a limited edition, but I hope this is a nasty rumour, and it will continue to be available.
