I found this at Hersheys.com while looking for desserts with maple and chocolate ZWT 3: Canadian (maple) and U.S. (pecans)

A really good dessert. Not too sweet, but excellent, deep chocolate flavor. The timing on this was perfect, at least for my oven ... 25 minutes and 25 minutes. They came out great. A keeper for sure. Thanks for sharing.
