There’s nothing like this juicy, this full of chocolate, piece of chocolate heaven! The excitement of preparing it and tasting it hot out of the oven drizzled with sauce is unparalleled. For those we want it, a scoop of vanilla ice cream will most happily find its way on top of the first piece! Or on the second one…
