Let’s start with the dessert – If you’re not into the baking routine, or you’ve just plain run out of time, here’s a quick and easy dessert that everyone will love.  Pick up a few packages of Pizzelle cookies. Melt a few bars of good baking chocolate in a double boiler stirring constantly. When melted, stir in a shot of Chambord Liquor until well incorporated. Break up the Pizzelle Cookies and put in a nice crystal bowl. Serve the Hot chocolate sauce as a dipper. It works best if you have a fondue pot!
