4. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

I’m throwing my powdered mix away! This is amazing. I used 30 individual Dove dark chocolate pieces. Perfection!

Excellent! I halved the recipe for my husband & I and used half & half in place of the milk & cream (I had a bunch left over from another recipe) and used high-quality bittersweet chocolate chips (didn’t chop them at all) and it turned out wonderfully. Made it twice in the last week, it was so delicious. Even my husband says he likes it so much more than the powdered stuff.
