This was very easy and very, very delicious! I did use a 2 qt. serving bowl but found I used less about half the angel food cake (and I made it even easier by using a bakery-bought angel food cake!) That seemed about the right amount of cake to balance the chocolate sauce as well. The pecans really added a lot to the dish but putting nice flavour and some crunch to the texture. I used really good quality chocolate and I think that would be important in this dessert. This will become one of my standards to take to a pot luck or to serve for special occasions when everyone would like a lovely rich end to their meal!
