    1. The alcohol helps preserve it, but also depends if you use fresh raw cream or pasteurized cream. When I make to gift I use storebought pasteurized cream and find the shelf life 2-3 weeks. I have another version which uses sweetened condensed milk and it has a longer shelf life due to more sugar.

  1. This has become a staple Christmas holiday tradition in our house! So easy to make and a fun treat for us and guests! We like it better than the store bought version!

  2. I make this every year at the beginning of December. It’s delicious and I often end up gifting it to friends or family I need a small gift for!

  3. LOVE THIS RECIPE. I make it every year for Christmas and give it as a gift. So much cheaper to make yourself.

  4. This is happy in a cup! You can make it vegan by mixing equal parts of coconut cream and a plant based milk.

  5. made several batches of this for holiday gifts this year and everyone loved it, some even asked for more.
