When asked to do a recipe from my cookbook for a newspaper article, this is one of the recipes I chose to do. Not only because of it's flavor but because of it's impressive Eye Appeal when brought to the table to serve guest. It is full of chocolate. It is a chocoholic's dream come true.I should also add that it is definately a family and neighbors favorite dessert recipe.
