Happy New Year (Eve)!!!!!!!! I just wanted to share a quick, fun & yummy way to ring in the new year! These Bailey’s Sweet & Salty Sundaes could not be more simple and everyone will love them. Customize them anyway you want – pick the ice cream and toppings – I highly suggest a sweet & salty combo; think chocolate covered pretzels, honey roasted peanuts, your favorite candy, hot fudge, salted caramel sauce, etc.
The only must have ingredient : Bailey’s Irish Cream.
I don’t really drink alcohol (like ever, really!) because I don’t like the taste of it. Wine, beer or liquor even if mixed with something yummy just isn’t my thing. But I will make an exception for Bailey’s Irish Cream. Smooth, creamy & pleasing to the palate, I actually really like this stuff because I can find a number of ways to incorporate it into lots of indulgent recipes. Having the Bailey’s Irish Cream coat the ice cream and whatever topping you choose is an easy way to take the typical sundae and kick it up a notch!
For the sundaes pictures I used: Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (3-4 scoops), 3 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream, a little bit of hot fudge, chocolate covered pretzels & some sweet & crunchy peanuts, oh and of course some colorful sprinkles (it’s not a party without those)!
Happy New Years!!!!!!
