Mike lovvvvvves chocolate, but I could take it or leave it. Lately, without even realizing it, I've all but ditched chocolate from my repertoire. Instead, I've been making lemon like it's goin' out of style. Mike hates lemon.
Basically I've been kind of mean.
So for Valentine's Day, I made him ALLLLLLL THE CHOCOLATE in one dessert. And even I have to admit, this thing is amazing. I just polished off my third slice, oh man. It's super easy, too -- particularly if you split it up over a couple of days. And definitely make it in advance and let it chill overnight before eating it. It significantly enhances the flavor. Enjoy!
