So, here's the thing... I'm an addict! To chocolate that is! Second on the list to coffee, gotta have my coffee! If you love chocolate as much as I do... you can't get anymore "chocolate" than a flourless chocolate cake! I didn't mess with this recipe that I found on foodnetwork, because like the sayin' goes..."If it ain't broke don't fix it!" Well, it definitely AIN'T broke!!! But, who knows... I may once again get creative in my baking skills...
