These spiced Baileys root beer floats make for a fall {and adult} twist on a root beer float.  The easiest dessert you’ll ever make!

So, hi.  You guys want to know what’s stressful?

Photographing Baileys root beer floats.  With a baby who awoke, mid-photo-shoot from his nap and demands cheerios!  More cheerios!  NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW!

Root beer everywhere…ice cream melting way too quickly.

Mmm hmmm.  Lots of cheerios were flung.  Lots of Baby Baluga was sung.  Lots of root beer went everywhere.

But let’s just pretend that you are relaxing.  Yes.  You are very relaxed.  It is Friday…you want a dessert.  And a cocktail.  And ice cream.  And…here is the perfect combination of all three.  Baileys root beer floats!

Adding Baileys to a root beer float totally changes it.  The root beer becomes so much more creamy, and of course you get that hazelnutty yum-ness and also a little booze.

Then sprinkling some cinnamon {OK, it didn’t quite sprinkle like I’d hoped and went more like: poof!}, which makes this float feel like all things warm and cozy {even though you’re eating ice cream}, and just generally fall-ish.

And in case you’re still not convinced, I made you another GIF.  I hope you’re not sick of them yet!
