    Very light but hits the spot for a chocolate fix! Love the toasted almonds, really adds a lot! Whole family loves it. Definitely will make it again.

    This was a hit. A tip though is to pour the chocolate mixture out of the pot into another pot or dish once thickened as it continues to bubble and sticks to the bottom of the pot.
