I enjoy experimenting with Gooey Butter Cakes for different occassions. When my office had a "Chocolate Decadence Day" I knew I wanted to try something really special. We have a lot of dark chocolate fans, so I went as dark as possible. It disappeared very quickly. It's now a favorite at our pot luck luncheons.
