Why You’ll Love Baileys Pudding Pies

Well hello and top of the mornin’ to ya! <<– That was my try at being Irish for half a second (although I actually think there is some Irish in there if I remember my Ancestry.com results correctly).

I think adding Baileys to chocolate pudding is probably one of the most genius things I’ve ever done.

  • EASY with chocolate pudding mix and Baileys!
  • Thin Mint Cookie Crust – use generic to make these all year!
  • The perfect single serve desserts!

The crunchy cookie mixed with the flavored pudding and whipped cream makes these the perfect dessert for any day of the year, but especially for St. Patrick’s Day!

  1. You are 14% Irish (according to the printout I have) so enjoy St. Patty’s Day. And don’t forget the corned beef and cabbage! πŸ™‚

  2. These look incredible and making them at 10am would not have stopped me from taste testing them just a wee bit πŸ™‚

    St Paddy’s Day is a holiday I pretty much do nothing for and I really need to up my game. lol
