Wow - this is sooooooo good! The chocolate has a rich and decadent flavor, but then you add the glaze and oh my... it is beyond delicious! I used Khalua liquor as that is all I had and although it is probably fantastic with the chocolate liquor, I thought the Khalua was really good as well. I made this as four mini loaves. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
