This recipe was created on the Island of Capri off the shore of the mainland Italy. Like many delicious desserts from Italy, this was also created by accident. I love flourless chocolate cakes in all sorts, this being one of them. This is for the real chocoholic! This dessert is also a great impression for guests or that special someone. But most of all you, yourself are worth making it just for you! I know I am! ENJOY!
