READY IN: 24hrs 50mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

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
