Yum, Yum, Yum. This recipe was a huge hit at my St. Patrick's Day Party. I did add a bit more alcohol than suggested. <br/><br/>I then used the same recipe to make a Chocolate Bailey's Irish Cream Cake. I just substituted with chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding, and Bailey's Irish Cream. Again, another huge hit at the party.
