Ingredients Nutrition

  • 28.34 g Grand Marnier
  • 59.14 ml caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 scoop French vanilla ice cream (I prefer Parlour in Canada or Dryers in USA)

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 recipe #117317 for the chocolate chip cookie and recipe #4790 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!
