Dark and Decadent. A must for the true chocolate lover! Make a day ahead as this requires overnight chilling time - But well worth the wait! This recipe comes from the Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona.

This recipe has been my "special night" dessert recipe for several years now (I'm slow to review). Love to serve it with a raspberry dessert wine. But even on its own, so wonderful! Thanks for posting

Oh my! This is to die for and is a must for chocoholics. I received a Creme Brulee Gift Set for Christmas and was excited to try out my little butane torch and I am so happy I chose this recipe to do so. I only made one half of the recipe since I only had 4 of the Creme Brulee dishes. I will get 4 more and serve this at my next dinner party. I know everyone would be very happy. Thank you Bev...Yum!
