By now, you must realize I am not the "love 'em and leave 'em" type.
I really am trying to pry myself away from Halloween. See, I am not even highlighting it in orange. But, then I saw this and well, after today, I am ending it. For sure. Stick a pitchfork in it. Done.
What a hoot! This recipe is from a collection of "What do I do with leftover candy" tips. It looks like so much fun to make up and dress up. Rarely to I do a two drink week, but maybe you do have candy left over? I don't and may have to go get a dark chocolate candy bar to try this out. It sounds more after dinner and dessert-y than "kick one back on the porch" to me. But, with one recipe serving 3, you and any lingering ghosts hanging around can decide when you want your last sweet sip of Halloween...before or after.
And, we actually had a couple of kids come dressed just like this cute little pink flamingo...
Leftover Halloween Chocolate Mudslide (complete with costume still intact!)
1 1/2 ounces Kahlua
1 1/2 ounces Irish cream liqueur
3 ounces vodka
3 ounces milk or cream (I think coconut milk here would be delish)
2 cups ice
1 (1.55-ounce) chocolate bar (better the chocolate, better the mudslide!)
Combine all ingredients with ice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Makes 3 servings
Okay...so, now I am done. I am putting the full color, Special Collector's Edition, 116 page The Best Of Martha Stewart Halloween Handbook a-w-a-y. Drat.
Drink up, pal. I've got a nice pine box just waiting for you.
