I have an extra Secret Recipe Club post today, since one of our members got orphaned (sad face).
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
. Though she now lives in the Brazil , she missed
Brazilian food and wanted to share it, so she started her blog to do just that! US
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!
*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.
