This mudslide cocktail recipe is a delicious alternative to mundane tasks. Whenever my conscience nags me to tackle tawdry household chores, I mix myself one of these luscious libations instead. As Phyllis Diller said: “Housework can’t kill you, but why take the chance?” This Mudslide cocktail will put you into a state of chocolate amnesia and make you so deliriously happy you will forget any unfinished tasks. It’s an extended daydream in a glass. There is nothing quite as therapeutic as spending a lazy afternoon on the couch nursing one of these adult Sundaes and catching up on the soaps.
