Sometimes a dash of Bailey's in your hot chocolate makes the holidays a little bit more relaxing.

Baileys Irish Cream is a liqueur made with whiskey, cream, and a cocoa extract. Many people drink Baileys straight over ice, or use it as a mixer in shooters, martinis, and Irish coffee. Some people (including me) even enjoy Baileys in hot chocolate or milkshakes.

Here are five recipes using Bailey's Original Irish Cream Liqueur that I found and have been enjoying during this holiday season! (Number 2 is definitely my go-to!)
