Mmmmmmm - this is true comfort food, dark, deep and a beautiful velvety brown, super yummy and sinfully delicious! The only substitute I used was margarine instead of butter. I've made this as a food gift for a little girl who loves anything with chocolate in it. I'll be attaching a tag with this and mentioning that she can spread this on bread, over biscuits, over muffins, etc. and have a wonderful homemade treat ready in no time. Thank You Very Much for sharing this!
