Phwoar, talk about rich. If you’re looking for some extreme chocolate decadence, this guy is for you.

This one was a thank you gift for my dad, so naturally I stole a piece to keep for myself before taking it over (I had to make sure it wasn’t poisonous, obviously). That one piece lasted me nearly three days. And I don’t mean I managed to avoid eating it for three days because I’m a good girl, I mean it was so rich that I’d eat a piece every couple of hours and then fall into a food coma. It was fabulous.

There’s a brief overview of the recipe with my edits below, but be sure to head on over to Omg Chocolate Desserts for the full chocolatey experience, complete with pictures and birthday stories!
