Spiked! Recipe Challenge: Irish Cream Winner


Good morning and welcome to the Spiked! Recipe Challenge reveal day! You all made this so hard for Carrie & I! Again. Not that we are complaining, but there was some serious email deliberations happening between her and I over the weekend. ;)

This month’s Spiked! ingredient was Irish Cream. So many of you came up with some very creative (not to mention, tasty looking!) recipes.

So, without further adieu, here are the Spiked! Irish Cream Recipe Challenge runner-ups (in no particular order)…

Caramel Irish Cream Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Sauce from Crazy for Cookies and More



Irish Cream Flavored Popcorn from Cooking on the Front Burner



Irish Cream Chocolate Pound Cake Trifle with Irish Cream Caramel Sauce from Call Me PMc



And the winner of the Spiked! Irish Cream Recipe Challenge is…

The Bailey’s Kiss Cocktail Cake from Cooking with Curls!



Congratulations, Lisa!!! What an amazing and decadent use of Irish Cream! Carrie and I will be in touch with you shortly to get you hooked up with your featured ad spots with each of us for the month of April.
