Tried the recipe twice and it didn't turn out. Horribly greasy...

I made this recipe for my food blog, Travel by Stove. It was heavenly. I mean, amazing. Yes, very sweet and rich (and soft ... don't expect to be able to slice it like chocolate fudge), but seriously delicious--a really wonderful indulgence.
