Made the chocolate filling for a layer chocolate cake. This was thick, and had the perfect chocolate flavor. Thanks for posting.

I made the chocolate filling for some pastry phyllo cups. Turned out wonderful. Directions were easy to follow. The chocolate had a light taste and complimented the phyllo cups perfectly. I will make this again!
