      this was as rich & delicious as the name implied. I made two subs: I had no Grand Marnier (I know, kind of missing the point, right?) so I used 1 tsp mint extract in place of the Grand Marnier and the orange zest, to make a mint sauce. I also used whole wheat flour. I would make this again with two changes: the salt in the crepes was too much, I'd put in 1/4-1/2 tsp at the most. Also, the amount of sauce was excessive for the amount of crepes--I'd make 1/2 the amount at the most.

      What a nice treat. This is a rich dessert and the Grand Marnier sauce is awesome. Prep time took a bit longer for me but it was worth it. I love the hint of orange with the chocolate and the presentation is so pretty. Definitely a dessert for a special occasion, thank you for sharing Rita.
