ok I am wanting to make BACICLY Toba Garretts chocolate buttercream.
BUT it calls for 5 fl oz of chocolate liqueur (godiva or orther.).

My question is is the ANY WAY to substitute something else?
I dont have any of the required ingredient and no time to go looking.
I need it Well today if possible. The cake will be for this weekend.
ANY suggestions? I dont even know what the Liqueur is actually.......
would coffee flavor work or hershey syrup work? I have both of thoes......

I looked up chocolate liqueur recipe and found this http://coffeeworks.blogs.com/coffee_and_tea/2006/06/make_your_own_c.html

A dark creme de cacao liqueur would be the cheapest equivalent of Godiva if you were going to buy some.
