I made this for my son's birthday because it sounded so good, but I was very disappointed, not very chocolatey at all, despite all the candybars in it, I was tempted to add some cocoa powder but I didn't, maybe that would have helped the taste. It just didn't have much flavor, in fact the kids thought it was CARROT CAKE!! nobody seemed to care for it, I'll stick to the tried and true and won't be making this one again.
