This is a wonderful, rich chocolate dessert. The only thing I did differently was add a tablespoon of espresso powder with the whipping cream and chocolate at step 8. Oh, and I doubled the topping. As the cake cools, the center falls, so I just piled the topping in there like a big chocolate swimming pool. I made it for a family Christmas potluck. It was the favorite dessert!
