easy to make. didn't have a tart pan so used a 9 inch pie plate. it is very rich so you have to eat small portions--this makes it last longer! will make again--a keeper.

Simply Irresistable!

This is the most amazing chocolate recipe ever!! I made this yesterday for a family gathering and it was gone in a matter of minutes. Everyone wanted one. I said that next time I guess I should make two!!!

Intense Chocolate Flavor

This recipe was incredibly easy. However, the chocolate flavor is extremely intense (even for a choco-holic like me). I think I might make this again using regular semi-sweet morsels and it would be great. Either way, it definitely needs whipped cream to balance that rich chocolate experience.
