Top Review by Jostlori

Oh. My. Goodness. I definitely do NOT regret trying this! It was decadent, rich, chocolatey fudgy. Oh, what other adjectives can I use? AWESOME! The orange totally complements the chocolate, and the whiskey is just a slight nuance that you almost can't put your finger on. YUMMY!!! Made for ZWT8 Zingo. Thanks, awalde, for another great recipe!
