Baileys Chocolate Cookies

Disclaimer: I’m completely infatuated with these cookies. Know whats better than chocolate cookies? The answer is: these cookies.

Chocolate cookies that are moist and fluffy like cake and infused with Baileys Irish Cream. Even better, they’re dipped in white chocolate to bring this recipe completely over the edge. Recall just how much I madly love white chocolate? 

Wait, did you catch the part that said these had Baileys in it? That’s an important fact since you most certainly can taste a hint of Baileys liquor in every scrumptious bite too.

These Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Cookies are the ideal st. patrick’s day sweet treat, from the Irish cream taste to the festive sprinkles.

Baileys Chocolate Cookies

The recipe isn’t overly complicated at all. I personally just had to shop for the sprinkles, since my kids used all the St. Patricks Day sprinkles on some Christmas cookies last year.

Yep. Hey, my kids don’t let friends in the sprinkle-group feel left out at anytime.

The rest of the ingredients for this recipe are ones that I always have on hand, since they are common baking supplies.

Like a good friend and cookie pusher does, I’ve been handing Baileys Chocolate Cookies out to friends left right and center.

I’m thinking of starting a Baileys Chocolate Cookies fan club, so this falls under recruitment. Let me tell you, members are knocking down the door!

The consensus is these delicious cookies are an entirely new level of amazing cookie. I’ve had friends say they’d literally trade anything to get their hands on some.

One good friend firmly believes life is better with ALL THE CHOCOLATE, so she dipped her Baileys Cookies in a cup of hot chocolate – triple threat.

The sprinkles and Baileys make these St. Patrick’s Day Cookies by default, yet I’m taking a lesson from my kids and am not going to play favouritism among the other great days of the year. These will be made anytime, no matter what it says on the calendar.

Droolworthy, indeed. I’ve got a new favourite cookie guys!!


How to Make Baileys Chocolate Cookies

You’ll need the following simple ingredients to make this delicious cookie recipe. The full detailed instruction are below in the printable recipe card.

  • unsalted butter
  • white sugar
  • dark brown sugar
  • Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
  • egg
  • vanilla extract
  • all purpose flour
  • baking soda
  • cocoa powder
  • cornstarch
  • white chocolate chips
  • sprinkles
Baileys Chocolate Cookies

To Make: Using the paddle attachment and the large bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with both sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the bailey’s irish cream, egg and the vanilla to the butter mixture and then beat until well combined.

Add all the dry ingredients (expect for the chocolate chips and sprinkles). Mix it together until smooth. Note: the dough will be very think at this time.

Make cookies balls about 1 tbsp in size, and press with the bottom of a cup to flatten somewhat. Place flattened balls onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Note that the cookies don’t rise hardly at all, and since I dip them with a chocolate coating as well, I tend to make smaller cookies rather than larger ones.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 6 minutes. They are done when you spot the edge cracking just a bit as you can see in my photos. Bake too much and they’ll crack more and start to try out. These cookies are meant to be moist like cake.

Take cookies out of the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for a couple minutes. Then, they will be firm enough to move onto a wire rack to finish cooling to room temperature.

When cookies are cool enough to handle without denting or breaking, melt your chocolate in a small bowl (separate bowl) in the microwave in 20 second increments until melted – don’t burn the chocolate!

Dip the cookies into the chocolate as desired and then place on parchment paper and apply sprinkles as desired. Allow chocolate to harden before you dive in. Enjoy!


Storage and Freezing Tips:

Place these yummy cookies in an airtight container or cover with plastic wrap and they will keep for up a week. The dough balls freeze well, for up to 3 months. Un-thaw for a day in the refrigerator before making and baking the cookies.

Perfect with a glass of milk, these bailey’s chocolate cookies are what the perfect cookie should be like.


These irish cream cookies are great for a special occasion to an everyday snack. Try these for your next cookie exchange and watch the compliments come flying in.
