This is soooo good
A must bring to friends/family gatherings
This recipe was simple to make and best of all the taste was devine. My friends all raved about how delicious it was when I brought it to my sister's bridal shower, now it a family favorite and a much requested bring to all gathers. I substituted the first layer of chocolate with melted "milk chocolate" chips. I melted them on the crust in the micro for 30 seconds, spread to create layer, then cooled and brushed with 1/2 the amount of melted butter
I thought this recipe turned out well. I couldn't get the chocolate layer to spread without breaking my crust, so i substituted an easy-spreading chocolate ganache. I also left out the nuts. It turned out great. Just be sure to refrigerate it for the full amount of time--I made it at the last minute and everything sort of melted together, though it still tasted good. I'd make it again.
