There. Now that it’s attained a G rating, I’ve got to tell you how utterly, exquisitely delicious it is!
The chocolate flavor is enhanced, but not over powered, by the instant coffee. That flavor marriage produces the popular mocha distinction that we so often crave.
The unique, sweet taste of a rich, buttery caramel sauce totally satisfies and adds to the moist texture of this confection.
Then the topping with whipping cream, more coffee AND heath bar pieces? Heavenly!
Happy birthday! Happy any day. Happy, happy, happy eat cake day!
