Top Review by SaraFish

I was attracted to this recipe because of it's simplicity. It's very good but it's not earth-shattering great. The light undertone flavor of the amaretto was really yummy. The consistency is a little thin so it runs off your dippers plus it's not that sweet, more of a dark smoky flavor. I think next time I'd use half bittersweet chocolate and half milk chocolate for a creamier taste. We used strawberries, bananas and cubed pound cake for dippers. Overall it was a lot of fun.
