Well, I guess I actually blew your recipe all to *#%! since I used a regular chocolate cake mix & left out the sugar substitute ~ Good thing I wasn't making this for anyone who's diabetic! Will definitely have to took for that kind of cake mix for another time, though, since I do have friends who'd appreciate something like this! Thanks for sharing the recipe, even if I did turn it on its head! [Made & reviewed while in Germany with ZWT6]
