Wonderful dessert. I didn't have Grand Marinier, so I left it out. Still, it's a great combo.
This was a nice little dessert idea. We don't drink alcohol of any kind so I shouldn't have added the Grand Marnier we didn't like the flavor it added to the caramel. Next time I will try plain orange juice. I used Blue Ridge Mountains Chocolate Chip Cookies for the chocolate chip cookie and French Vanilla Ice Cream for the french vanilla ice cream. Thanks Lottidawe Bullwinkle.
This was suggested to me in a thread about using alcohol and ice cream together. I did not have chocolate chip cookies but instead used brownies and it worked really well. As I was making this for two I doubled the caramel topping and grand marnier. We thought that was a little too strong (and left a LOT unused). So next time I'll just use 1/4 cup caramel and 1 oz. grand marnier for 2 desserts. This is very rich and the pecans were a nice touch. Thanks so much for suggesting it!
Very simple to put together, but delightful presentation and, of course, delicious! The Grand Marnier really kicks the caramel topping up a notch. :) Would also be good with chocolate topping. I used homemade chocolate chip cookies, but I had already baked them, and I toasted the pecans in a toaster oven, so this went together very quickly. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
