Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie LiqueurTravis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueur
: 15% alcohol; is a recipe handed down from Travis Hasse's dad, Gene Hasse. Travis began making Pie Liqueurs at his home and serving them to his friends and family. The response was better than he could have imagined. In 2006, Travis and wife, Cathy purchased the Missouri Tavern, and with endless requests from people wanting to buy a bottle, he decided to share his recipe with everyone.

Travis launched his first pie liqueur, Travis Hasse's Original Apple Pie Liqueur, a heavenly blend of apples, spices, cinnamon and neutral grain spirits in September 2008, followed by Travis Hasse's Original Cherry Pie Liqueur launched in 2009, made with maraschino cherries, a hint of vanilla, and neutral grain spirits.

His latest creation, Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueuris like an adult version of chocolate milk, and combines chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and neutral grain spirits. Travis found inspiration for this luscious liqueur from another Wisconsin Company, the Baraboo Candy Company, producing Homer Holstein's Original Cow Pie Chocolate since 1981. A great fan of their Cow Pie Chocolates, Travis thought a blend of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and neutral grain spirits would be a wonderful marriage for a liqueur. It is indeed!

Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueur is definitely love at first sip, whether served chilled over ice, drizzled over vanilla or chocolate ice cream, or used in cocktail or culinary recipes.

The classic Egg Cream, a New York soda fountain favorite made with milk, seltzer water, and chocolate or vanilla syrup, no, there are no eggs in an Egg Cream, was the inspiration for Luxury Experience - Egg Cream ABV. The name Egg Cream ABV is a play on the words "alcohol by volume" listed on spirits bottles to indicate the percentage of alcohol in the product.

This tasty grown-up cocktail combines Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueur, cream soda, and milk and may very well become your favorite replacement to iced coffee.

The Brazilian candy called Brigadeiro was the inspiration for Luxury Experience - Cow Pie Candy. When I lived in Brazil, my friends and I used to make a non-alcohol version of the candy for parties, and I thought that the candy would be outstanding made with Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueur. I was right!

This delectable candy has the perfect balance of taste and texture, and is easy to make. Luxury Experience - Cow Pie Candyuses Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueur, sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, 2% milk, butter, white chocolate, and crushed peanuts. The result is a crunchy exterior that extravagantly yields to creamy chocolate. Definitely love at first bite!

Milk, 2%
2
Tablespoons
Cocoa Powder
1
Tablespoon

Cups

1
Cup
Peanuts, roasted, salted, and crushed

Method: Butter a medium bowl and set aside.

In a medium pan, add the sweetened condensed milk, Travis Hasse's Original Cow Pie Liqueur, milk, cocoa, and butter, and stir well to combine with a long handled wooden spoon. Cook over medium heat stirring continuously until the mixture comes away from the sides of the pan and starts to look dry, for approximately 15 minutes.

Pour the chocolate candy into the buttered bowl and let cool. Once completely cool, butter your hands, and using a buttered melon baller or small spoon, roll the mixture into a ball and set on parchment paper lined baking sheet and place in the refrigerator to chill for approximately 30 minutes. (May be held overnight, before completing the next step, however, if so, cover with plastic so the candy does not dry out.)

Remove the candies from the refrigerator and set on your workspace. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over simmering water. Stick a bamboo skewer or toothpick in a candy ball, quickly dip it in the melted chocolate, and then roll it in the crushed peanuts. Set on parchment and continue. Refrigerate in a covered container until serving time. Can be made several days in advance.
