Oh, yes! This is a great treat for any chocoholic! I used the semi-sweet chocolate, & the chocolate, along with the almonds made for a very delicious dessert. My son & his wife managed to confiscate half of it for another day, but that was fine, 'cause I'd made TWO of 'em ~ One for the 4 of us & another one to share with a neighbor family! This is definitely something I'll be making again! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
