  • 300g dulce de leche (we used Merchant Gourmet)
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300ml brandy



    Brandy is a distilled spirit made from virtually any fermented fruit or starchy vegetable.…

  • 284ml/9½fl oz and 142ml/5fl oz pot single cream


  1. Spoon the dulce de leche into a bowl, then beat in the coffee, vanilla and brandy until smooth. Stir in both pots of cream until well mixed.

  2. Pour into 1 large or several smaller sterilised bottles. This will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks. Drink in liqueur glasses or serve over ice.

I made this as Christmas presents but with Whisky instead of Brandy as I didn't had loads in the house. It was so easy to make and tasted lovely. I'll definately make this again.

Heavenly! I used three quarters Carnation Caramel to a quarter Carnation Light. It works just as well with ordinary condensed milk (not boiled).

This was brilliant! Made it as a treat for my Sister-in-Law who's a big Bailey's fan - and it went down a storm. It's the simplest thing in the world to make - and I ended up with 1 500 ml bottle and 2 250ml bottle - great for gifting! I reckon it's actually a bit nicer that Baileys as it's not quite so sweet, and it's a little bit thicker. I do think I'd make it with decaffeinated coffee next time, as I'm a bit susceptible to the effects of caffeine late at night! Definitely one to be making again.
