Applebee's Mud Slide

Menu Description: "Bury your sweet tooth with smooth Kahlua, creamy vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and rich Hershey's chocolate syrup."

Sure, there's a little Kahlua in there, but this famous Applebee's drink is more dessert than cocktail, really. And the presentation will make you look like a pro because you spiral the chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass before adding the drink. It looks cool and its easy to do...even after you've had a couple. Grab a straw and prepare to crave another when this one's gone. No wonder this drink also comes in a larger size.

2 cups vanilla ice cream
2 ounces Kahlua coffee liqueur
Hershey's chocolate syrup (in a squirt bottle)
Canned whipped cream

1. Measure 2 cups of ice cream into your blender. Add the Kahlua and blend until smooth.

2. Prepare a 16-ounce wine glass by swirling chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass. Hold the wine glass by the stem with one hand and twirl the wine glass as you squeeze the chocolate. Slowly move the chocolate up toward the rim of the glass so that the chocolate makes a continuous spiral around the inside of the glass.

3. Pour the drink from the blender into the glass. Add a pile of whipped cream to the top of the drink and drizzle additional chocolate syrup over the whipped cream. Add a straw and serve.

Makes 1 drink.

I have been trying to get the right balance of Kahlua and ice cream for a while as well and couldn't get it right. This is the perfect balance in my opinion although my friend likes it better with half an oz. less of Kahlua.

I've been trying to duplicate the Applebee's Mudslide for ages, but never could find just the right balance of Kahlua and ice cream! This is perfect!

This one needs to be supervised by the F.D.A., it's so close to ADDICTIVE! It's gotta be my all-time favorite.
