    Janine Smith's Note:

    The title sounds strange, but the mixture of red beetroot (beets) and chocolate gives a wonderfully "earthy" flavour, not to sweet and for those who don;t like beetroot you really cannot taste the beetroot taste. From Delicious Magazine July 2004

      I made this today and it's fantastic - the only change I made was to replace the flour with gluten free flour and it still turned out perfectly. Thank you for this recipe, it's going onto the regular rotation (while there is still beetroot in the garden...)
