    This is a world-class chocolate dessert recipe and was such a treat to share with friends along with accompanying sips of the Dicembre wine. It would be helpful to note on the recipe that really three cups of chocolate are required if you want to make the sauce (which is so delicious and really completes the dessert). We added some cream to the melted chocolate/wine sauce to make a ganache-like topping that stayed creamy even after cooling to room temperature (also better for leftovers the next day). Also, we used one cup of homemade almond flour instead of the regular flour to accommodate gluten allergies . Almond flour is super-easy to make in a coffee grinder using raw almonds. Thanks for this great recipe! 🙂
