You have to love sweet and chocolate to enjoy this dessert! It's easier than it looks. I got the recipe from a gal I worked with over 20 years ago. She was with Weight Watchers and always made desserts and brought them to work. She would just have one very small piece and share the rest! She had more willpower than I could ever have!

I mean.... pure chocolate decadence! The whipped cream frosting on top is simply to die for.  We decorated with chocolate ice cream topping and it worked like a charm.
