    Wonderful dessert. I didn't have Grand Marinier, so I left it out. Still, it's a great combo.

    This was a nice little dessert idea. We don't drink alcohol of any kind so I shouldn't have added the Grand Marnier we didn't like the flavor it added to the caramel. Next time I will try plain orange juice. I used recipe #117317 for the chocolate chip cookie and recipe #4790 for the french vanilla ice cream. Thanks Lottidawe Bullwinkle.

    This was suggested to me in a thread about using alcohol and ice cream together. I did not have chocolate chip cookies but instead used brownies and it worked really well. As I was making this for two I doubled the caramel topping and grand marnier. We thought that was a little too strong (and left a LOT unused). So next time I'll just use 1/4 cup caramel and 1 oz. grand marnier for 2 desserts. This is very rich and the pecans were a nice touch. Thanks so much for suggesting it!

    Very simple to put together, but delightful presentation and, of course, delicious! The Grand Marnier really kicks the caramel topping up a notch. :) Would also be good with chocolate topping. I used homemade chocolate chip cookies, but I had already baked them, and I toasted the pecans in a toaster oven, so this went together very quickly. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
