Recipe by Simbas Kitchen

This cake is very good! My whole family gets together for dinner at our parent's house every Sunday and I always bring a dessert. This is my sister and brother-in-law's favorite! I got the recipe out of a cookbook I bought on QVC. "Best of the Best from QVC Cookbook". This recipe was submitted by Vivian C. Ferguson. The recipe calls for the chocolate to be shaved , but that's too much work for me. I just grind up the chocolate in my food processor.
