Mississippi Mudslide {For Two}: SRC

Hey everyone!

I have an extra Secret Recipe Club post today, since one of our members got orphaned (sad face).

Secret Recipe Club

But someone else’s loss is my gain!  I got to whip up something from Denise’s blog, From Brazil to You.  Denise was born and raised in Brazil.  Though she now lives in the US, she missed Brazilian food and wanted to share it, so she started her blog to do just that!

I would have loved to share one of her beautiful Brazilian dishes with you today, but, well, it’s currently doing this outside.

Yep folks, that is one fierce blizzard and pretty much the whole town is shut down, so I am left using ingredients that I already have on hand.

Cue Mudslide!  Yep, I have ice cream and booze.  I’m waiting out this blizzard, wrapped in a blanket by the fireplace, drinking boozy ice cream.  This is the life!

Thanks, Denise for a delicious way to spend my snow day!

Recipe Notes:
*I didn’t have any chocolate ice cream on hand, so I used vanilla bean ice cream & added about 4 tablespoons of chocolate syrup to the mix!  You can also use coffee ice cream & chocolate syrup.

  18. This looks tasty! I make one similar to this, but use coffee cubes in it. When I have coffee leftover in the pot from the morning, I freeze it into an ice cube tray and then pop them out to make smoothies and milkshakes or to plop into some coconut milk for an iced latte. ;)

    Great recipe! Thank you for entering the Spiked! Irish Cream Recipe Challenge & good luck! :)
