  6. Hey sounds great, but does it have a shelf life?

  7. I’ve made this many, many, many times (added 50 lbs to my body from partaking too much). It’s THAT good! Be aware of the calories and that cream only lasts so long in the fridge (thus the reason I packed on the pounds, I couldn’t let my heavenly Bailey’s go bad!). You will definitely enjoy!
