    One for the chocolate lovers, the added Kahlua makes it great for grown-ups

      Deliocious! My daughter prepared this rich dessert using "maraschino" for the flavor.
      I'm sure she will prepare this for us again.

      Thanks Terese for a great recipe. I didn't add any liquor, but I did add a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of clove and ginger. Everyone loved it. It didn't last long enough for me to take a pic, I will do it again very soon.

      I changed the recipe to milk free and it was FABULOUS. I used dark chocolate and a little corn syrup to sweeten to taste and it was awesome. This recipe is so simple and elegant. I will be making it again.
