Baileys Zebra is a combination of…well…Baileys and coffee, then drizzled with dark chocolate. What a great “adult” frozen treat!!
Who doesn’t like frozen treats? As a kid I loved popsicles, fudgesicles and creamsicles. Now that I am an adult (well most days ?) and making things at home is so much better….these frozen treats have taken on a whole new level of YUMMY!! This year I picked up some frozen treat molds.
Now that I am a gramma I want to make sure there are always great tasting snacks for the grandchildren to have…keeps them visiting often!! But what about “special” adult treats? Looking in my fridge I realized I had some Baileys in there. We were hosting a BBQ and I thought this would be the perfect time to give these treats a try. What a great way to end a day in the sun!!
Using some instant espresso (you can use freshly made espresso as well) I made some coffee in a measuring cup. You can make the coffee as strong as you like. To the coffee I added the Baileys. My mixture ratio was 1:1. If you want it more creamy you can add some regular coffee cream to the mix. I poured the mixture into the molds and placed them in the freezer.
Once frozen I got ready to drizzle the chocolate. I melted some really good dark chocolate and placed it in a piping bag. I took the treats out of the mold and placed them on a cooling rack. I drizzled the chocolate over the treats, and put the rack with the treats into the freezer just to harden. Once hardened, I took them out, turned them over and drizzled the other side.
I put the rack back in the freezer to harden again. Since now you cannot place them back in the mold…and we were not eating them at this point, I carefully placed them in a container (single layer) on wax paper, sealed with a lid back in the freezer till we were ready to eat.
Honestly it doesn’t get any easier and you certainly can’t buy a Baileys Zebra in the store. I will say when I brought these out at the end of the night they were a hit, all I heard was “OMG Baileys“.
I know I will be experimenting soon with more yummy options. Luckily I bought 2 sets of molds….one for the adults and one for the kids!!
Baileys Zebra…fun…easy…the perfect adult frozen treat!!
