ONLY 71 days 'til Christmas, lads.
Okay, maybe we're jumping the gun a bit, writing so much about Christmas when it's only halfway through October-- we've already covered The Late Late Toy Show and the soon-to-be-released Christmassy Baileys salted caramel cupcakes (which look amazing, by the way), but we couldn't help ourselves when we came across this newest Baileys treat.
Very soon-- November 11th to be precise-- a Baileys Chocolate Yule Log will be hitting Tesco's in Ireland and the UK, and we're almost as excited to try this as we are for Christmas itself.
Seriously now-- just look at that.
A super-chocolatey sponge cake filled with chocolate cream, absolutely COVERED in Baileys cream frosting and topped with massive flakes of milk chocolate and a chocolate Baileys plaque?? Come on. Who came up with this glorious monstrosity?
Baileys is already guaranteed to add to the few pounds everyone puts on around Christmas time every year-- in Ireland especially, Baileys coffee and hot chocolate are a staple in the lead up to the big day, and now it looks like we'll be washing those down with a slice (or two, or three,) of this cake.
Oh well-- 'tis the season, after all.
