Add the Baileys to the egg yolks. 

Fold in the egg whites to the yolks. 

Fold in the whipped cream. 

Pour mixture into a mold - a coffee cup or ramequin.  If using a ramequin (like in the picture), wrap it with parchment paper before filling.

Brush the paper with butter and it will stick to the porcelain.

Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours.

To serve, remove the parchment paper and dust with cocoa powder.
