Thin Mint and Bailey’s Chocolate Float

Thin Mints and Bailey’s Chocolate Float ~ Is it possible for ice cream to make all things better? Perhaps and perhaps I might appear to be finding solace in a cliche. But I assure you, I’m not. If you’re wondering what the hell I’m referring to, take a look at how Hollywood films like to portray women finding comfort in a pint ice cream after a break up. Well I just had a break-up, but it was with my work. The ice cream float is not a drowning of sorrows, but a celebration for things to come.

Thin Mint and Bailey's Ice Cream Float

A great thank you to C.O. who I had termed the office “Dealer” and M.M. for being the enabler by sending out the email letting us know she found a source for our annual feeding-fest and hoarding of Girl Scout cookies. And a big thank you to all my office mates who became my friends.

So while I will miss lunch and the daily 3:00pm runs for coffee and tea with you, A.E, C.G., D.O, H.D. M.M., I will be finding today’s afternoon pick-up in this little bit of gluttony. It’s an ice cream float stacked with Bailey’s Irish Cream, chocolate ice cream, vanilla cream soda and a whole lot of crushed Thin Mints. Here’s a big cheers and thank you to you guys, my boss, G.F. those I supported, J.B., M.H, E.K. and everyone I worked with who so postively impacted my life!

With that I’m happy to say I’m excited see where this new adventure takes me next.

    Oooh, I love the dark background.

    I have mint Bailey’s but no access to Thin Mints. All these Thin Mint recipes are killing me! I guess I could just make my own, but they wouldn’t be the same.

    Good luck to you in your future work adventures!

  1. […] Add them to a tasty drink. I guess you can think of this as enjoying Thin Mints the grown-up way. There are so many of my favorite things in this recipe, and it’s so simple! These would be even more beautiful with a dollop of whipped cream and some sprinkles on top. Why not try these out for St. Patrick’s Day? [source:: Bakers Royale] […]
