Our daughter's name is Bailey and while she was named after a dear friend and not BAILEYS® Original Irish Cream Liqueur, it is one of my favorite drinks. Bailey has always wanted to try it so I was so excited when I heard that they were introducing BAILEYS Baking Chips.
They have the smooth taste of BAILEYS® that you can add into your baking and they are alcohol free. They are Semi-sweet chocolate chips with natural flavors, kosher dairy, made with the flavor of BAILEYS® Original Irish Cream. You can find them at your local Walmart.
