The holidays are getting a little sweeter thanks to a partnership between Baileys Irish Cream and award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel. The liqueur brand and the owner of Dominique Ansel Bakery have announced that they are releasing an exclusive non-alcoholic Baileys Swirl Holiday Hot Chocolate Kit that reimagines the signature Baileys Hot Chocolate.
“As we’re gathering with our friends and family again, we’re so excited to help make holiday celebrations even more delicious and easily accessible with the Baileys Swirl Holiday Hot Chocolate Kit,” says Stacey Cunningham, director of liqueurs at Diageo. “We’re thrilled to partner with pastry pioneer, Dominique Ansel, who has continued to innovate the treating category and has created our new favorite drink of the season!”
Each kit, created exclusively by Ansel, includes a rich homemade chocolate ganache, a ganache infused with the flavor of Baileys Original Irish Cream (non-alcoholic), a mini gold whisk to help whip it all up, piping bags to create the signature ‘swirl’ effect, as well as two hot chocolate mugs with custom “Yours” and “Mine” drink tags to share with someone special.
“The holidays are always an extra special time for us, and if there’s anything the past two years has told us, it’s that celebrating those sweet simple moments with friends and family at home are what we treasure the most,” says Dominique Ansel. “This holiday season, I wanted to create something special that everyone can make together, our own little spin on a classic and cozy cup of Baileys Hot Chocolate that you can share with the ones you love most.”
The Baileys Swirl Holiday Hot Chocolate Kit will be available for purchase for a limited-time beginning Tuesday, November 30 while supplies last both in-store at Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City, as well as online for nationwide shipping for those aged 21 and older (to the lower 48 states).
