This was quite tasty!! It was even better the second and third day. I did have to change a few things to fit what we had on hand! For the whiskey, we used W L Wellers (I think my dad almost cried watching his whiskey become a sauce! Lol). I also used Frangelico in cheesecake and whipped cream. We had some leftover hazelnuts from Thanksgiving that I toasted, coarsely chopped and added the the sauce. Yummy!!
