Whiskey in coffee may have been around forever, but true Irish Coffee is said to have been invented in County Limerick in the 1940s. It’s one of the easiest bar drinks to make at home, and is a warm and comforting treat on a cold and windy night. SAM
1 teaspoon sugar or to taste
3/4 cup hot strong coffee
1 ounce Irish whiskey
2 tablespoons whipped cream or topping
In a glass or mug, dissolve the sugar in the coffee. Add the whiskey and stir thoroughly. Top with whipped cream.
Makes 1 serving.

Emily’s blog friend almostgotit has been saying for months that we needed a Rocky Road recipe. Here’s hers. It’s technically fudge, not a cookie. But it’s a great way to launch Cookie Week on the ROL! SAM
1 (12-ounce) bag chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened, condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups salted, dry-roasted peanuts
1 (10.5-ounce) bag mini marshmallows
Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with tinfoil, letting ends extend 2 inches above the ends of pan. In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter, stirring to blend. Add the peanuts and marshmallows. Spread in the pan and refrigerate until firm. Lift the foil by the ends onto a cutting board and cut the fudge into 1-inch squares. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container.
Makes about 9 dozen squares.
