St. Patty's Day Ice Cream Drink



I LOVE Ice Cream. LOVE it. I can't even keep it in the house because I will eat it. Every second. Of every day. It's that bad. So I had to have a purpose to bring ice cream into the house, and it was this lovely concoction that I dreamt up the other day - of course, involving Baileys for St. Patty's day.

Ice cream. Baileys. Heath toffee bits. Homemade vanilla whipped topping. What's that? Oh, you want the recipe so you can go make one right NOW?? I'm sorry. Let me just spend some more precious time telling you how great these are [to taunt you a little]. In fact, great isn't quite the right word. Out of this world awesome is more like it. I could have eaten the whole blender full of this stuff. But I have a roommate and he seems to like ice cream, too. Into two glasses it went, as I silently wept a tear, and slurped to my heart's content.



You need one of these. Badly.

And Happy St. Pat's Day!
