This Baileys Chocolate Pudding is a great dessert to serve on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s made with cocoa powder and melted dark chocolate for the ultimate creamy, boozy, and satisfying chocolate dessert.

I only have a few recipes suitable for St. Patrick’s Day on my blog. One being a gluten free Irish Soda Bread (yum 😍) and the other being Corned Beef Hash, which is perfect for using up leftover corned beef and boiled potatoes. I always make extra corned beef though just so I know I’ll be able to make that Corned Beef Hash – it’s phenomenal.
Last year for dessert, I made a Baileys Cheesecake (not on the blog) – it was seriously so, so, so, so good. I might have to make it again just to share it here! This year, I decided I wanted to go a little lighter (more room for corned beef!) and I’ll be making this Baileys Chocolate Pudding instead.
Just a heads up though, this is not a kid friendly dessert. The Baileys Irish Cream is stirred in after the pudding cooks so it’s a boozy dessert, just the way I like it 😉 For the kids, you can add an extra 1/4 cup of milk when you add the milk in the recipe and just omit the Baileys. Sorry kids, your pudding won’t be as fun.
This Baileys Chocolate Pudding is really easy to make. And unlike my Dairy Free Coconut Custard, this recipe contains no eggs which makes it even easier. It also gets an incredibly rich chocolate flavor from two kinds of chocolate: Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa (Dutch processed cocoa powder) and chopped dark chocolate (I used 72% dark).
The chopped chocolate is stirred in at the end and melts from the heat of the pudding. That, along with a bit of butter, gives the pudding such a smooth and creamy feel. SO good. You truly won’t be disappointed with this one. You also might find yourself not wanting to share. Enjoy!
