Car Bomb Pudding

Happy St. Patrick’s Day kids!  Today is one of our favorite family holidays.  Mike is German/Irish and his family is from Cleveland.  I’m Scotch-Irish, English, and French.  So we’re big fans of Guinness, Jameson, and Bailey’s.


Mike and the Boys


{Men in kilts are so sexy!}


This morning we packed up the boys and went up to our local pub for pints and lunch with some friends.  It was a great time. And as always, the first one’s for Mike’s dad.  Sláinte!

I was really excited to here this round of Spiked was Irish Cream.  I mean come on…  GYCO is beer this month and Spiked is Irish Cream?!?  BRILLIANT!  This is why Carrie and Julie are my friends.  I didn’t have any Bailey’s in the house, so this month I went there.  I made Homemade Irish Cream, and went from there.  The Irish cream came out wonderful.

I’m kind of in love with this pudding.  I didn’t go full Irish, but if you’d like to use Guinness Chocolate Pudding, you’d be the man, or woman – as the case may be.  And GO!

      I’m hiding the Irish Cream in the fridge so I don’t have to share it. Now I just need to run to Wedny’s for a frosty to mix it into. Thanks for the amazing recipe!

      Hi Lynn. I used the Irish cream immediately. I’m sure it would just get better if you waited, but I’m impatient like that. :)
