This is a chocoholic’s dream recipe and offers “balance” to healthy living.   It is the equivalent of a personal hug offering indulgent cocoa comfort just when you may need it the most.

I have tried this recipe using different brands of ingredients but I have found that by using “Green and Black”, organic products and spelt flour the sensual experience on your taste buds is just orgasmic and worth every cent of the indulgence.

Preparation Time:                  10 minutes                                                

Cook Time:                              30 minutes

Oven Temperature:               180 degrees

Settling Time:                         Leave stand for at least 10 minutes to cool
