The original recipe for this was a little too basic, so I added my own special touches and it's one of the most decadent chocolate tortes I've ever had! Very good the first day of course, but REALLY good the second day! *If making for company, i highly suggest making it one day in advance. The texture becomes more dense the second day. Hope that helps! Hope you enjoy this as much as we did! It's really wonderful!!
