"I think the chocolate is gilding the lily. Consider using port in place of the champagne, and leave out the orange, use brandy in the whipped cream...." See more"
"So easy, yet so elegant. My family loved these and they make a great presentation. I will be serving these at some up-coming ladies luncheons. Thanks Christina...." See more"
"Very yummy and easy. I followed the suggestion of another user and added add the grand manier to the chocolate. But don't! Otherwise the chocolate will freeze up and get chunky. I had to throw it away..." See more. Instead, drizzle it over the final dessert. Also, i used wine instead of champagne."
