This is the ultimate party dessert, because on New Year’s Eve is the ultimate party of the year and we like to go all out. If you’re having a party and serving party food, it’s really difficult to serve dessert, so why not give everyone their own individual desserts?


I love giving everyone their own desserts and these can be made hours ahead of time so you can make them the day of your party or event and just keep them refrigerated until needed. I would try and make 2 per person because it is difficult to drink just 1 (I know this from experience).

This is a great alternative to traditional eggnog. During the holiday’s,  my go-to after dinner drink is Irish cream  and I have taken it to a whole new fun level. Who doesn’t love a milkshake?


Coffee ice cream and Bailey’s Irish cream is blended, poured into shot glasses and topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and chocolate cookies that I found at my grocery store. The whipped cream is unsweetened because I think the drink is sweet enough but if you like your cream sweet, you can add a couple of tablespoons of sugar before whipping.

The drinks from above served and ready to be eaten
