This is fabulous! Rich, and incredibly chocolatey, but so simple to make. I made it at my mother's request for her 60th birthday last weekend, and it was a hit. One major change I made (due to non-availability of hazelnut meal) was to substitute the hazelnut with 1/2 almond meal and 1/2 coconut flour....which worked beautifully, and I will do again. This is definitely a "Keeper".
