Oh the fun of having your oldest be of legal drinking age!
I had gone to the library a few weeks ago and got a ton of cookbooks, so my son decided to peruse a couple of these and found a recipe for Applebee's Mudslide. It was fairly simple to make and low and behold I had the four ingredients it takes to make it.
I think the whole idea of ice cream and chocolate in the drink was a little enticing for a novice to drinking alcoholic beverages and I was game. The recipe said that it makes one 16 ounce drink, but we split it between the two of us just so we could give it a try and we didn't want the ice cream to melt before we could drink them.
The mudslide was really good and so we are going to share the recipe with all of you. We found this recipe in More of America's Most Wanted Recipes. We will be sharing more recipes from the first book in a few days. But for now here's Applebee's Mudslide.
2 C vanilla ice cream
2ounces Kahlua coffee liqueur
1 T chocolate syrup
- Combine the ice cream and the Kahlua in a blender and process until smooth.
- Swirl the chocolate syrup in a 16 ounce wineglass (we used 2 smaller glasses), holding the glass by the stem, until the sides of the glass are well coated. Pour the ice cream mixture into the glass and top with whipped cream. Add a straw (or a spoon) and enjoy. Serves 1
