  1. WOW! Sensational! I used only 1 tablespoon of brown sugar (as I knew that that would be plenty sweet enough for us), a tablespoon of a yummy Australian chocolate orange liqueur and so that the sauce wasn't too liquidy I doubled the quantity of chocolate, so I ended up with closer to three cups of the most amazingly flavoured chocolate sauce. It was just SO much tastier than those gourmet sauces in elegant bottles that you see around Christmas time. Yummy plus! This is a great prepare- ahead recipe to make when entertaining and - despite the outrageously high fat content - I'll certainly also be making this again from time to time for us to enjoy. We enjoyed this with premium-quality vanilla icecream as Evelyn had suggested. Divinely flavoursome! A wonderful adult Easter topping! Thank you, Evelyn!


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
