This is a particularly lovely desert; I am sorry I don't have a picture. I will take one the next time I make it. It is as smooth as can be; and exceptionally delicious for all of you chocolate lovers out there. It is very well suited for special occasions or times you want to impress. I have had this recipe for years; but have made at least a couple of changes. It is truly delightful! Enjoy!
