I'm trying to use up the 5 bottles of Irish Cream I have left over from Christmas!! I'm fed up drinking it so I'm using it up in my baking. I have a couple of flavours, biscotti and mint are delicious. This cookie recipe can use any Irish Cream you have.

If you're a fan of Irish cream, then you'll be a fan of these cookies! The chocolate and Irish Cream in the cookies is great. But, then topped with an Irish cream frosting and melted chocolate... my oh my! Definitely an adults only treat. The Test Kitchen
