This chocolate crunch cake is excellent and very easy to make. The special slicing of the dough is the secret for having melted chcolate inside the cake after the cake is ready. My guests always ask me to make it when coming for a visit.

- 4Remove the dough from the mixer and wrap using plastic wrap. Let the dough sit in the refrigerator over night.
