My favorite chocolate dish is a dark chocolate cream pie. Smooth creamy and rich with a touch of whipped cream on top. Yum.

My favorite chocolate dish is anything dark chocolate, especially a dark, dense cake.

I'm so glad to hear that!!! When I was a child, and to this day, though I do love milk chocolate, BOY, good dark chocolate is really fantastic and something to be savored!! :D
