I've been making this recipe for many years. With a fudgy, brownie-cake and rich chocolaty pudding, it's a go-to favorite when I want something chocolate and decadent. It's very easy to make, with ingredients I always have on hand. My husband asks for it often, and it always gets rave reviews :) In my personal recipe rating system, five stars is as good as it gets!
