Made this at Christmas time and about to make another. Really easy to make and taste so delicious. Family soon eat it too. However this time I am going to add a few more shots just to get that Bailey's kick.

Yummy! I used 8 tablespoons of Baileys! Went down a treat and soooo easy to make. I made the base using a mixture of milk chocolate digestives & hob-nobs. Perfect.
