#KissMeImIrish Irish Cream Profiteroles | Baking a Moment

Do you remember my last post, about how to make perfect pate a choux?Β  Well, there was a method to my madness there πŸ˜‰Β  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.Β  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.Β  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!Β  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!Β  But since I love you guys so much, I decided to go all out for ya.

To Make the Bailey's Irish Cream Mousse Filling:

  3. Whip the cream until it holds stiff peaks.
  4. Fold the whipped cream, meringue, and white chocolate/Irish cream mixtures together until incorporated.
Make the Warm Chocolate Sauce:
  1. Place the chopped chocolate and cream in a bowl and set it over a pot of simmering water. Stir occasionally, and remove from the heat when the chocolate has completely melted and the sauce is smooth and glossy.
  2. Stir in the corn syrup.
To Assemble:
  1. Cut the tops off of the Pate a Choux puffs.
  2. Fill the cavities with Bailey's Irish Cream Mousse Filling.
  3. Place the tops back on the puffs, and drizzle with Warm Chocolate Sauce.

Profiteroles are best served immediately after assembling.

  1. I am DYING over that chocolate sauce being poured. I want it, now! Also, what a cool addition to the post! I need to learn how to do that! These are gorgeous, and I’m so happy I know what to make with your fab pat a choux recipe!

    1. 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!

  2. Allie, I need a dozen of these beautiful, light profiteroles filled with luscious, creamy Irish cream mousse and smothered in chocolate sauce. Whoa, girl! These are amazing! And your photos get me every time. So so so beautiful. I’m so happy to be celebrating St. Patty’s Day with you!

  3. These look amazing, Allie! I saw your pate au choux recipe and thought how brilliant they looked! I love the Irish cream and chocolate in these- a great modern take on traditional profiteroles! πŸ™‚

    1. 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! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. Allie, I’m definitely swooning over here. I have to say, you make the best eggy puffy dillys… they are always just so perfect! Then you had to throw in that amazing chocolate… you are just amazing! πŸ˜‰

  5. A cream puff with Baileys! I just can’t get over the genius of that! The powdered sugar and the chocolate on top! I love the video of you pouring the chocolate… makes me want to devour these even more! You have made the perfect cream puff that I NEED to try!

  6. Love the action shot, Allie! And I agree with another commenter that it would be hard to come up with something more delicious than a cream puff with Bailey’s in it! These still somehow look pretty light, though. Well, that’s what I would tell myself before stuffing myself with lots of them, anyhow!

  7. 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 πŸ™‚ how about that!!! what do you think, shall I go for it?

  8. I am totally drooling over these amazing cream puffs Allie – they look insanely good! The boozy filling and warm chocolate sauce sound incredible and I love the action shot. Wish I was the one pouring so I could have a sample – yum and pinning πŸ™‚

  9. These profiteroles look amazing! I just made a batch of eclairs yesterday, and now all I want to do is go back and make these profiteroles. Irish Cream Mousse sounds quite tasty!

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

    1. 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

  10. That seriously looks incredible! Thanks for sharing on the weekend re-Treat link party! Hope to see you at the party tomorrow night!
