This recipe has been in my family for over 50 years. Yes, it's very rich. But it is soooo gooooodddd when you get hit with a chocolate craving. My family loves this. My husband has bragged about it to everyone at work, and now this gets made regularly for all his co-workers! I don't cut this into cake size slices due to the richness. Covering with some French Vanilla Ice Cream would break up the richness if that is a concern!
