Try as I might to find a clip for you, an internet search turned up no results. My apologies. It's horribly entertaining, and I think my description doesn't do it justice.
So this weekend, I cooked with cordials. Hiram Walker creme de menthe, to be exact. A huge bottle of it because that was the smallest size my liquor store had. Any suggestions of what to do with the rest are greatly appreciated.
I made the Grasshopper Bars from Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented. The base is a thick fudge-brownie layer. It's topped with a creamy mint layer and a firm layer of chocolate ganache. I omitted the mint extract since I didn't have it, but I was glad. The bars were minty enough as is, and I think the extract would have been too much.
The bars sliced up beautiful. Baked mentions they're equally appropriate for a child's snack after school and for a beautiful plated dessert to finish a dinner party. I found they were perfect with good friends, long conversations and wine.
