    If you like chocolate, you'll love this. We ran out of normal milk chocolate and used a toblerone, which added extra crunchie nougat bits to the middle layer, which was good. We also made the top layer from pure white chocolate, rather than the 2/3 & 1/3 mix suggested. Used Kahlua, Cointreau & Southern Comfort for the three layers. Visually, it would probably look better to have the white layer in the middle. The butter & cream made it less brittle & so easy to cut. I'm salivating just thinking about it (we ate it 2 days ago).

    Ok I know I posted a review already, But I just saw my family after the party I served the cake at and they just went on and on. I also microwaved everything! nothing was done in a double boiler.So much easier!
