Got a bottle of Baileys in for Christmas? These Baileys recipes show that there are SO many ways you can use it with seriously impressive results. 

Of course, we love Baileys on its own over ice, but we also know how good it can be transformed into cocktail, cheesecake, meringue, trifle and more...

With these easy ways with Baileys, you won't be left with a half empty bottle of Baileys as you'll have so many ways to try it. The Irish cream liqueur is one of our favourite festive tipples. Rich and creamy, it tastes just like Christmas. But did you know you could use it to make one of these fabulous recipes?

1. Baileys cheesecake

This simple cheesecake is one of our popular recipes and LOVED by our Facebook fans. It's worth the few extra steep to make this light-as-air no bake cheesecake.

2. Mini Baileys eclairs

These afternoon treats take a bit of effort, but the creamy Baileys filling makes them a true crowd pleaser. Have them with a special afternoon tea, or pass them round at your Christmas get-together as a sweet bite.

3. No-churn chocolate and Baileys ice cream

You won't need an ice cream machine to make this impressive dessert, which you can make ahead and pull out of the freezer 5 minutes before serving.

The velvety bread and butter pudding is taken to the next level with a big slug of Baileys, which makes a classic winter pudding one for the grown-ups.

5. Chocolate Trifle

This chocolate twist on a trifle brings a retro dessert right up to date. It's so simple, but SO good!

6. Chocolate Parfait With Irish Cream
