  • 1 cup Milk (divided)
  • 2 oz Semisweet Chocolate
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 3 oz Baileys Irish Cream (more or less to taste)


  • whipped cream


  • Heat 1/4 cup of the milk and all of the chocolate over low heat in a pan and whisk to thoroughly combine.
  • In a separate pan set on low whisk the egg yolk until smooth and heated, being careful not to let the yolk curdle.
  • Slowly add chocolate mixture by the spoonful into the yolk while whisking continually. Add the remaining milk and heat to temperature.
  • Add Baileys to a mug, and pour in hot chocolate. Top with whipped cream.


If you prefer not to make the hot chocolate from scratch, you can simply add Bailey to any pre-made hot chocolate.
