Baileys® Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Christmas is in less than two weeks.

That’s right.

LESS THAN TWO WEEKS.

Yikes.

I really do love this time of year but for some reason I’m in a funk. And not the good kind. I’m slightly less excited about it than I normally am.

Why? Not really sure.

Alrighty then.

It’s time for some ice cream.

Made with Baileys®.

And some Ghirardelli chocolate chunks.

How are you doing this Christmas season? Excited or meh?
