These were wonderful. Lots of chocolate flavor. Moist and delicious! Will have to try with a little espresso powder to enhance the chocolate flavor even more.

A dense chocolatey treat. Made for my sweetie for Valentines Day dessert but with white chocolate morsels instead of walnuts (cause of allergies). Also I chose to use just 1 tsp of salt since 2 1/4 tsp sounded like an awful lot. These are dense and flavorful and were very good with a little cherry topping that I warmed and served over them. I'd planned to mold the outer ends of the wedges into hearts prior to baking and then forgot to, but that would be a cute Valentine idea.
