    JustJanS's Note:

    I saw this in an Australian magazine recently and thought it would be a nice dinner party dessert. A bit high in cals, but that's ok once in a while and nice if you halved the recipe for a romantic dinner.

      Delicious! I used 80 ml Grand Marnier and just might omit the nuts next time.

      Actually, I use glace pears and glace apricots and, sometimes, a little glace pineapple. Yum.
