Bailey's and Andes Mint-Mild Liquor Parfaits
My son's 19th birthday was last week but he went snowboarding with friends and my husband was away so we had his birthday last night after the swan show and frigid beach day.
Then I was on the hike for creme de menthe, which I was gold by a package store manager that it is hard to buy now. So I bought a Bailey's mint.
Along with the Bailey's, Andes Mints, white chocolate and dark chocolate pudding, angel food cake and home-made whipped cream, layered to may one large parfait, then turned into individual parfaits for family and friend.
They were unbelievable. I bought the ingredients and my son wanted to make them. I had already researched many recipes including Rachel Ray's. Her recipe was layering vanilla ice cream, the creme de menthe and the home made whipped cream. Others had chocolate bits and various cakes or puddings. My son gave me the list of ingredients. It took me almost an hour and a half to get everything. I couldn't find the Andes Mints so I went in the baking department and they had bags already broken up like chocolate chips. If you want the recipe, let me know.
Everything was made in one large trifle (truffel) bowl); Forget how it is spelled.
