"I used Ghirardelli 60% chips and added 2 Tbsp of sugar. Couldn't wait for it to cool completely. Yummy!"

"I made this for my husband, who likes dark chocolate, one Valentine's Day a few years ago and he loved it!

It's so smooth, creamy, not a lot of work and very delicious! I left it al fresco and enjoyed it very much without the cookies or chocolate curls!
I don't really like dark chocolate all that much but I LOVED this! I need to make it again soon!"
