Absolutely delicious! I made some slight changes by using mostly half & half instead of whipping cream and also I used about 5 ounces white chocolate and some semi sweet chocolcate chips for the other chocolate. I think I spread the dark chocolate on a bit thick, as it was very hard when it was in the fridge - I left in the the refrig for about 2 hours rather than the 15 minutes specified and I skipped the white chocolate drizzled over the top all together. Delicious though and this is very definitely a keeper to make again very soon!
