Thermomix Baileys

We made this recipe in our cooking class at Fantan in Vancouver and it was very successful.  I have made this over the years to give out as gifts at any time of the year but especially at Christmas.  It is really easy to do and I find it less sweet and thick compared to the original.  It is also more economical to make it yourself. Cheers!!!!!
