I thought this was a very rich but good treat. And just to clear something up on behalf of all the chemists out there...alcohol has a much lower boiling point than water, therefore after it reaches 78 degrees C all the alcohol has evaporated and all that you taste is the flavor left behind. Sooo, If the title for Italian S'mores included everyone, I would definetly give it a 5.

Rich, wine tinged chocolate desert served on a crunchy biscuit. Hubby was the only person in our house who tried this recipe (too much alcohol for me) and he really enjoyed it he said that all the flavours were very pronounced and he was happy to have another serving. Thank you kiwidutch you helped a chocoholic attain his chocolate fix.
