Is it possible to make homemade chocolate liqueur? Really? And it only takes 15 minutes! Chocolate liqueur can be consumed straight, as an after dinner drink rather than as aperitif. It can be used in mixed drinks and in desserts, especially in dessert sauces, cakes and truffles.
I love making edible gifts for Christmas and for birthdays. I put myself into the effort so the gift has my heart and my love. I gave homemade edible gifts for Christmas or any special occasions in the last two-three years for my loved ones. The success was always guaranteed. This liqueur is perfect for anyone for any occasion.
