Melanie's Story

This recipe is great and it only costs about $8 to make compared to $25 in a store. I found also that if you cut the whiskey down to 3/4 cup, double the chocolate and use 3/4 teaspoon of coffee you get the best results.


1/2 c
evaporated milk (1 12-ounce can)
1 c
irish whiskey
2/3 c
granulated sugar
1 Tbsp
hershey's chocolate syrup
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 tsp
instant coffee

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine all the ingredients in a pitcher and mix well or shake until sugar is dissolved. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Shake before serving.

In that case, why not buy a 5 oz can and use 1/2 cup ( 4oz). Less waste.

Read the says,

1/2 c evaporated milk (1 12-ounce can)


Use a 1/2 cup from a 1 12-ounce can. So you should buy a 12oz can and only use a 1/2 cup
