Ok. Wait. I know what you are thinking BAILEYS® Original Irish Cream Liqueur is an alcoholic beverage. You are right. But BAILEYS® Original Irish Cream Baking Chips have the flavor or our favorite Irish cream without any alcohol.

They are also kosher dairy, semi-sweet, and distributed by Clabber Girl (yes, the makers of the baking powder I am pretty sure you have in your pantry.) Also, they are conveniently available in your local Walmart and online, so there are no excuses not to bake this holiday season your favorite goodies.

How to Make & Serve Chocolate Cranberry Banana Bread

Following are my best tips to make this banana bread:

  • Always use over ripe bananas.
  • Use unsweetened cocoa powder: remember ripen bananas are super sweet, and chocolate baking chips and cranberries also bring sweetness to the recipe which includes some sugar too.
  • Always bake it in the center of the middle rack of your oven.
  • Wait until it is completely cooled down, to slice it.
  • Always slice it with a serrated knife.
