I’m so excited to be bringing you this recipe today!  I think it’s a really fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day!

#KissMeImIrish Irish Cream Profiteroles | Baking a Moment

Do you remember my last post, about how to make perfect pate a choux?  Well, there was a method to my madness there ;)  You’re going to need those big, beautiful, eggy puffs for today’s recipe.

#KissMeImIrish Irish Cream Profiteroles | Baking a MomentI showed you how after they were baked, they puffed up and hollowed out inside.  Well, today, we will be filling them with the lightest, creamiest, booziest Irish Cream Whiskey mousse you’ve ever tasted!

The mousse is super simple to prepare.  It’s just three components, folded together and chilled:

  1. White Chocolate melted together with Irish Cream Liqueur
  2. Egg whites whipped with sugar
  3. Whipped cream

It doesn’t get much simpler than that!  Just spoon a little of that fluffy mousse filling into the hollows of your choux puffs.

These are so heavenly, just dusted with a little powdered sugar for garnish!  But since I love you guys so much, I decided to go all out for ya.

      Thanks, Cate! I just learned how to do it myself, actually. I think there might be a better way than the method I used, though. I have to do more research! I’m happy to share with you though any time just lmk!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      Haha thank you Connie! I love “foodporn” and I’m so pleased that you think my post falls into the category. Thank you so much for organizing this party- I had so much fun with it! Blogging buddies 4ever! :D :D :D

    Hi Allie, if there is only one thing I will always crave that would be Choux (filled with nearly.. anything). Thank you for the recipe. However, since we are not allowed to drink (forbidden in our religion) I guess I will omit the Bailey.
    Yet, to my surprise only couple of days back I discovered non-alcoholic Bailey in an elite food shop :) how about that!!! what do you think, shall I go for it?

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      Oh, it totally is, David! The Bailey’s works so well in this mousse. Would be so good in an éclair too, if you have any empty shells left over ;) Thanks so much for stopping by and for the great comment! So happy to meet another choux-lover, lol!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      Wow, thank you so much, Kathi! Isn’t Bailey’s just so irresistible? I ADORE it, all year ’round, but especially around St. Patrick’s Day! And it worked so well in this fluffy filling! Thanks so much for the awesome feedback <3
