Chocolate Fondue - Triple Sec vs. Grand Marnier?

brian874 Jan 3, 2008 05:25 AM

Hi all,

This Sunday, I've decided to make Ina Garten's Orange Chocolate Fondue recipe.

On the show, she used Grand Marnier, which is what she recommends in the recipe:


My question is this, I have a little bit of Triple Sec at home, I don't have Grand Marnier.

Do you think it will be THAT much better if I use Grand Marnier, or can I get away cheap with the Triple Sec.

I'll buy a small bottle of GM if need be, but I hate to buy it when I know it's not something I'd be using that often.

But, that being said, I don't want to "ruin" the recipe.

    IIRC, Cooks Illustrated did flavor testing recently and said triple sec was a good replacement in cooking.
