It’s Holiday time again. Is it snowing around you yet? Ready to exchange gifts? Can’t wait to see family? This time of year brings out the best of so many things. One of my favorites is the food and drinks that we create. So many wonderful desserts, so many festive drinks. I’m getting hungry just talking about this. One thing Lori likes to do is combine our love for drinking, with her passion for baking and making desserts. So I thought, it’s time we feature some fun desserts using some tasty spirits. Baileys was practically MADE for this type of an occasion so we thought it only right to start with them.  Below you can find some tasty dessert recipes you’ll probably be stealing for your holiday party, but just remember to keep it away from the kids!
