Wow is this one good!!
I cut the recipe in half and use Disaronno instead of bourbon (simply because I didn't have any) and wow was it amazing! It's a serious dessert with some wonderful tastes! I will for sure be making this one again! I think it would be great for a dinner party where you want something easy to make but with a more adult flavor.
