Baileys Cookies and Cream Parfaits
These Baileys cookies and cream parfaits are a decadent dessert packed with layers of thick chocolate cream, boozy Baileys cream, and crumbled Oreo cookies.
- 15 Oreos
- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream, very chilled
- 1/3 cup Baileys Irish Cream, very chilled
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
Place chopped semi-sweet chocolate in a small bowl. Heat milk until steaming, then pour over chocolate. Let sit for 2-3 minutes, then stir. If any chunks of chocolate remain, heat in the microwave for 30-second intervals until all the chocolate has melted. Mixture will be very liquid, like chocolate milk. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate,1/2 cup milk
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), add in chilled heavy cream, Baileys, and powdered sugar and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 5-7 minutes.
2 cups heavy whipping cream,1/3 cup Baileys Irish Cream,1/4 cup powdered sugar
Divide cream mixture in half. The first half of the whipped cream will be left alone and is ready to use in the parfait. The second half will be mixed with the chocolate. When ready, slowly add the chocolate mixture over this half of the whipped cream, gently (yet thoroughly) folding them together until completely mixed.
To assemble the parfaits: Using a pastry bag (or just a spoon), add layers of the cream and crushed cookies as you see fit. To do this as pictured, I layered chocolate, then cream, then cookies, then cream again, then chocolate again, then cream again, and finally finish with any remaining cookie crumbles on top.
Parfaits can be served immediately. If you’d like the chocolate layer to be firmer, chill parfaits for 2-3 hours before serving.
