Comments: This recipe was on Pinterest and posted by MayFlaum I followed this recipe to the letter and apparently it's delicious! I don't eat chocolate so I can't say personally but all of my food testers have raved about it's moistness, flavor and richness. For my cocoa I used Dark Chocolate so the coloring came out almost black! It really looked great. A cherry on top would have been perfect.
