Irish coffee milkshake shooters are easy, fun, grown-up individual desserts perfect for parties, entertaining or St Patricks Day. Irish cream liqueur is blended with coffee ice cream,topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
This is the ultimate party dessert, because on New Year’s Eve is the ultimate party of the year and we like to go all out. If you’re having a party and serving party food, it’s really difficult to serve dessert, so why not give everyone their own individual desserts? I love giving everyone their own desserts and these can be made hours ahead of time so you can make them the day of your party or event and just keep them refrigerated until needed. I would try and make 2 per person because it is difficult to drink just 1 (I know this from experience).
I’m not a big fan of eggnog, but Irish cream is my comforting after dinner drink of choice and I have taken it to a whole new fun level. Who doesn’t love a milkshake?
Coffee ice cream and Bailey’s Irish cream is blended, poured into shot glasses and topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and chocolate cookies that I found at my grocery store. The whipped cream is unsweetened because I think the drink is sweet enough but if you like your cream sweet, you can add a couple of tablespoons of sugar before whipping.
