Found this while noodling around on the web and posted in response to a request for "chocolate splodge". Thought it sounded promising! Personally, I'd leave out the marshmallow goop.

I love chocolate, so naturally I would love this recipe. Didn't make any changes, and I prefer the whipped cream to the marshamallow cream for the topping. Thanks for posting.
