I think I have shared about my dad’s consumable only Christmas present rule before. In keeping with that I told him I wanted a bottle of Grand Marnier for Christmas, since I always use substitutes for orange liqueur in recipes… It never seems worth the price for 2 tbsp. They visited a few weekends ago and he delivered my Christmas present early. Since then, it has been sitting on top of the fridge patiently waiting.
Celebrating my good friends birthday today, I cracked open the seal and made these two recipes; chocolate-studded Grand Marnier ice cream and a dark chocolate orange soufflé. Notice the soufflé didn’t even make it into the picture. They were gone instantly – which is exactly how a soufflé should be eaten. Happy Birthday S!
