My husband's Christmas party was catered by L'Auberge du Lac and this was the best dessert served out of many. It has a strong hint of the liquor, and a gooey chocolate taste, almost like a perfectly undercooked brownie with the pecan bits inside. Absolutely delicious, it was a phenomenal hit, served at room temperature without topping. I found the recipe posted on our local news site by the pastry chef who catered the event, Bill Foltz.

Directions

  1. Melt together butter and dark chocolate.
  2. Using a paddle mixer, mix sugar, cocoa, whiskey and eggs.
  3. Add melted chocolate mixture.
  4. Scrape well.
  5. Stir in pecans.
  6. Pour into a greased pan lined with wax paper. (10" round).
  7. Bake in a water bath at 350°F for approximately 50 minutes; or until center is 170°F.
  8. Chill.
  9. Serve cold or room temperature with your favorite fruit or caramel sauce.

I made this for a special dinner and it was devoured by all. Very flavorful but I wouldn't suggest serving this to children. You can taste the Jack Daniels :D. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queens 2010
