Lucky in Love Blog Hop

 
Here at Paranormal Romance Fans for Life, we are Lucky in Love! We have the opportunity to be surrounded by great books, great authors, and great readers. 
As a thank you to our regular followers, we are offering not one, but two giveaways and our favorite Lucky in Love Recipe! (Thanks to bestselling author, Danica Winters, whose book The Nymph's Labyrinth was recently featured in USA Today!)
 
Bailey's Irish Cream Liqeur

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (Torani brand almond syrup is a wonderful replacement if you can find it in your area)

Directions:

  1. In blender, combine all ingredients; blend until smooth.
  2. Store tightly covered in refrigerator up to one month. (It won't last that long!) Shake bottle well before serving, and return remaining liqueur to refrigerator.
  3. Note: Use only Grade A, uncracked eggs.
