Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one of those awesome desserts that you can have just a bite of and feel satisfied. With an intensely dark chocolate flavor, they are practically fudge-like in consistency. So rich, so creamy, so GOOD!

  • 7Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, do a toothpick test and if it comes out clean then it's done.
