Here we have fun mixed with fun.

I’ll hedge my bets on it that you like cream, cocktails, coffee & chocolate.

Mmmmm! Coffee! |

If you do, then these poptails are certainly begging for you & you are begging for them.

Cocktails on a stick have been all the rage for a few years now & we need to keep the trend going!

Baileys Irish Cream is one of those gems we all tend to have tucked away in the liqueur cabinet.

Take it out & friend it. Now.

Can regular sugar be used in place of whole cue sugar?


22 Marla May 18, 2014 at 7:57 pm

Yes it can Sue, same measurements.


23 sue May 18, 2014 at 4:55 pm

Can regular sugar be used in place of whole cane sugar?


24 Urgunner May 19, 2014 at 3:35 am

Can these be made without the coffee! I absolutely hate it and can taste even the smallest amount….


25 Marla May 19, 2014 at 7:34 am

Yes they can. You can entirely leave it out or swap in some cocoa powder instead.


26 Matt Robinson May 19, 2014 at 10:05 am

Time for me to make these for the adults this weekend, love them!


27 Marla May 19, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Yesssss! You will be very pleased you did :)

These look so good! We are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with family tonight. I’ll be making these dessert! Perfect for a 95 degree day in March in Southern CA!


29 Marla March 16, 2015 at 5:22 am

Oh yes!! These will be perfect for your celebration!! Enjoy & Happy St. Patrick’s Day. xx

take out the sugar as Baileys already has plenty and trade the instant coffee for espresso and you have a winner 😉
