    So different than the other cream sauce.Yummy.
    Amazing sauce. I use it on bread pudding and pecan pie instead of whipped cream. MMMMMMMMmmmmmmm!
    I have made this many times with the Chocolate Bread Pudding & this sauce is a must with it!!!! Between the Kaluha in the bread pudding & the irish cream in the sauce.....TO DIE FOR!!!!
     My uncle had stopped over right when we were having dessert, so I gave him some. All he did was rave over it. Since then we moved & he said if he ever comes down to visit us...I'd have to make this for him. He's coming in about 2 weeks & he already requested it & I told him that I was way ahead of him. LOL!
     NOTE: Try to get the sauce on the bread pudding before you eat/drink it all from a spoon/cup - LOL!
    Lord this stuff had me drooling! It was so awsome over the Chocolate Bread Pudding. Had it for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it and are asking for the recipe for it and the pudding. Cant blame them, Im ready for more myself. Also great over ice cream when not so thick.
    I had leftover cream sauce and ate it like a dip with toasted wheat bread! yum! It is a must to top your chocolate bread pudding!
    I added carmel sauce (smuckers-- that you'd put on ice cream) instead of the Bailey's. Heavenly with the chocolate bread pudding. Would also be good over warm brownies. I'll try it with Kahulua next time. YUM. Oh-- it took quite a long time to thicken, so don't be surprised about that.
    This is amazing with Paula's Chocolate Bread Pudding! But I bet it's great on many more desserts than that... or even added to hot chocolate or coffee- yummy!
    This was wonderful with the chocolate bread pudding! Forget dessert, I could eat this as a meal! Of course, I would weigh 500 lbs very soon. What a way to go though!!! :-)
    This Sauce is very yummy and totally easy to do..
    This is a great sauce. The irish cream liquer added a great kick to it making it different from other bread pudding sauces.
    I can drink this cream sauce all night long. Hiccup!!
    So delicious with the chocolate bread could probably combine it with other types of cakes and desserts as well. It is so creamy & rich..Delicious!!
    no words to can describe the taste of this on the choc. bread pudding
    This cream sauce is a perfect topping to the Chococlate Bread Pudding which is outstanding!! Perfect!
    This is delicious. My husband fell in love with this recipe. I highly reccomend this recipe. Very good for deserts. That is why im giving it a 5+
