Baileys & Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb

My obsession with buying cookbooks, does not stop there.  It also extends to the monthly food magazines too!

  1. I've never tried to make honeycomb but I really must. You make it sound so easy and the whole dessert is scrumptious.

  2. Thanks Joanne. It really is that easy. The quantity of Baileys I used gives a strong flavour, so adjust according to your own taste.

  3. Mmm it sounds delicious. I never try this kind of desserts. Baking a cake always was much easier for me, but I would love to try this one.

  4. You should try it, Magda. It's a really easy one to do. Hope you give it a go!

  5. Colette, this sounds amazing. I've never been successful with honeycomb so will have to try your recipe soon. I'm all out of Baileys now too after my obsession over the past week with adding it to coffee. Your mousse will give me an excuse to buy a new bottle now!

  6. Thanks Adrienne. Until I started making it last year, I never made it in my life. Just watch it when you put the Bicarb in, and get it on to the baking tray quickly. Don't try to spread it, just roll the tray around, and it will find its own level. I bought a small bottle of Baileys this time, so I wouldn't be tempted :)

  7. I have a lovely recipe for crunchies (but dread to think what goes into making those) so I reckon I could use your honeycomb recipe and make my own!

    A plan!

  8. Oohh, do share your crunchie recipe with me, please, M. Was trying to figure out how to make one after making this honeycomb :)

  9. We bought a bottle of Baileys for the holidays and still have plenty left - I think I know how some of it is destined to be used now!

  10. Thanks for your comment, Kristin. This recipe is so easy to do, but tastes like you have put a lot more effort in, than you actually have. Hope you try it.

  11. Oh wow, this is just AMAZING! (and like you, I have a major addiction to cook books and food magazines!)

  12. Thanks a million Breige. We all have a secret addiction to the books and magazines, if the truth be known. It's such an easy recipe. Hope try it.

  13. I meant to make this after the first time I read about it but had no Baileys! Just bought a new bottle last weekend ... so watch out waistline!

    1. Do try it Caroline, and yes, waistline beware, but it's not like you'd be having it every day ;)

  14. Just spotted this - now wishing I hadn't drunk all the Baileys at Christmas - looks lovely!

    1. Thanks Dee. You can make the mousse without the Baileys too, but it is a bit special when you do add it :)
