Notes: Ok, so I know they have a bunch of baileys in them, but I really don’t taste it. A mudslide drink is kahlua, baileys, cream, and chocolate. Mine has coffee, baileys, and nuts…so maybe they aren’t so perfect, but they are pretty good! If you get them out just when they begin to crack on top, they will be chewy inside and crunchy outside, which is the way I like them best. Try them out, maybe serve them with the Guinness brownies and have a drinking dessert theme party!
