Recipe by RyGuy
I got this recipe from my chocolate and coffee loving aunt. I help my mom make it when she needs a lot of dessert as it is filling and rich. The filling can be doubled for an especially scrumptious dessert.

Made this for sharing at a weekly meeting we attend, mostly because I'm not a big fan of coffee (don't mind making it, but just don't want to drink it or taste it), & it was a big hit there! I did double the amount of the filling & everyone was raving about it, so that tells me how great it was! Now to find just the right substitute for the coffee in it & I'll make it for myself! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement recipe tag]
