How easy and yummy is this !!!! Due to the hot, hot day I had to make this as a slice. It would be hopeless handling chocolate in this heat ! Using the ginger cookies is a great idea. I used OJ instead of whiskey as the children will be eating these !! This made a perfect fix for my chocolate craving !!
