Step one is to shake the heavy cream in a mason jar or Tupperware container. After it’s shaken well, place it in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Up next, beat your eggs, adding the condensed milk.  Thoroughly beat both ingredients together.

After that step, mix in the chocolate syrup, adding the vanilla and coconut extract while beating with a hand mixer.

See how easy this is! The Easy Homemade Irish Cream Recipe can be served straight up, over ice, in your coffee, or used as the base for an Irish coffee. How about serving this on ice cream served with a chocolate wafer and whipped cream? Yum! 

Recently, I opted to add a little bit less than a cup of whiskey the last time I made a batch. Feel free to tweak the ingredients to your taste when it comes to adding vanilla and coconut.
