    Ridgely's Note:

    Chunks of chocolate cake mixed with chocolate ganache pressed into a springform pan, chilled, unmolded, and then coated with more ganache. To die for! The interesting way this cake is made is what drew my attention to it. I had to try it! I was not dissapointed!! A heart shaped insert for the springform pan will also make this a great Valentines dessert. I got this recipe from Mmmm..

      While this is indeed very tasty and chocolate-y, it also has an unexpected grainy feel when you eat it. Also, I think you are only supposed to put 1 of the cake layers in--I put both in and ended up having to make more ganache to get the cake to the right consistency. Will probably not make again.
