    These look great! I think I will take them for a Halloween parry on Saturday! Just wondering though, would it be okay to just leave out the Whiskey? We will be in mixed company.

    Marissa, yes, it’s totally OK to leave the whiskey out. It adds a good flavor to the sauce but it’ll be just fine without it. We’re having it on Saturday for Halloween too – Have fun!

    How much whiskey to be used? Seems that is missing from the recipe list. And is there a preference as to what kind?

    1. Dan

      That’s 2 tablespoons of whiskey, I corrected that in the recipe card for you. The whisky is optional, but it does add a nice kick!
