Chocolate Liqueur

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Pilates Gal

This recipe came from Josephina, a dear friend, when we lived in Naples Italy. If you can't find grain alcohol, you could get away with using vodka. You'll want to use it within a few weeks or shake it up every now and again since it tries to settle. Drizzle some on top of fresh fruit in season for a very easy, sophisticated dessert.

Really chocolatey, smooth liqueur! Just a pinch of salt and some vanilla might not hurt, but this is good as it is. And ready at an instant! Great recipe!
