I had planned to put up a Pin of the Day.
But one pin led me to another pin and another … and you really can’t have enough bourbon, right?
And since I’ve been a little lax with the Pin of the Day lately, you, dear readers, get a collection of pins.
A pintopia, if you will.
It all started with the “the Irishman” that I’m sipping on … a latte with Irish cream liqueur … what did you think I meant?
I’m sitting in Vint coffee on Frankfort Avenue in Louisville, surfing Pinterest.
You know — generally being productive.
The $22.50 “Irish car bomb” pack comes with two Guinness marshmallow packs and one bourbon marshmallow pack.
I like Guinness. I like bourbon. I like marshmallows. So following through with the logic, these are amazing TIMES THREE!
But that made me wonder: Could a DIY option be found?
So I consulted the great Pinterest powers that be and down the rabbit hole I went.
I had never really thought about the beer and marshmallow combination, but mixing a creamy beer like Guinness with marshmallow-y goodness could prove fortuitous. The saltiness of pretzels is also a good touch.
Whisk(y) adapted the recipe from one found in Fine Living, and it generally doesn’t look too difficult.
But why stop there?
If alcohol plus marshmallows equal good things, why not mix them with other equally yummy things?
And the next, most logical choices: bacon and chocolate!
I know — you were thinking this too, right?
How Sweet It Is has a recipe for bacon marshmallow s’mores — a breakfast food, no less.
And Sconemasters has a post explaining how to make bacon bourbon marshmallow caramel bark.
When four ingredients are good enough to list in the title, you know it’s probably pretty good.
As with other Pins of the Day, I have not personally tried the projects listed but thought they were interesting enough to pass along.
If you do try them, let me know how it goes.
