    what is Almond Roca? Are those the gold foil wrapped balls? tia maria liqueur...what kind of flavor is it...is it strong? I love angel food cakes with light fillings..I do lemon filling, chocolate..and others with fresh fruits. I am curious about this with the tia maria..(I am not a drinker..persay) This is something I would love to try..but unsure about the liqueur.

    Hi Lynn Tia Maria is a coffee liqueur made originally in Jamaica using Jamaican coffee beans. It is very delicious and not alcohol tasting...I really don't like alcohol myself...I am most definetley not a drinker!!! I will post a picture of the bars bur really you could use any you like or whats available...also I like your idea of the gold foil wrapped balls.
    Hope you try it as you will love this dessert....so easy and a show stopper!!!
