Good morning, everyone. Again I come for advice from the experts.
What can I use as a substitution for the liquor Creme de Cocoa in a
chocolate cheesecake recipe? The cost of the liquor is rather
prohibitive so I was wondering if a substitution could be made. Any
and all responses much appreciated.

You can use any chocolate flavoring. If there is a significant amount of
liquor, I would use the flavoring and use cream to make-up the balance.
Remember, this is a case where less is more. Don’t over-do the flavoring.

Dear Vox — again, you have responded with sound advice. I followed
your suggestion and substituted chocolate flavoring with equal part
heavy cream and the result was excellent. My thanks to you.

Glad it worked. Thanks for reporting back.
