Petitfour, this is absolutely outstanding - especially for die hard chocolate lovers (like me!). I took this to a family gathering of 32 and it was up against my SIL's pumpkin cheesecake which is also very good. She had a lot more leftovers than I did and I don't have much. The flavor is so creamy and the different chocolates are wonderful together. The instructions were clear, and yes it does take some time to put together. It made a beautiful presentation, and was enjoyed and complimented by all. Thanks again for the great recipe.
