Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is one of my favorite go to recipes. If I am having special company for dinner on a work night this recipes throws together quickly and easily in the morning before leaving. The unsweetened whipping cream is perfect with this delicious rich and chocolatey treat It has never failed to be a hit.
I've made this a few times for holidays and special occasions. It is without a doubt, delicious! VERY rich, though so only slice into slivers (about 1 - 1.5 inch at base of wedge). It's easy and has a beautiful presentation.
This dessert is outstanding but so rich. You can only eat a sliver. Everyone who tasted it loved it. I will probably make this one forever.
I have made this twice. It is a wonderful and very rich.I have also used the crust recipe for pecan pie. The non-celiac family members prefer the crust over flour crust now. Woderful and easy to make.
Thank you for this site. It is my favorite GF baking site.
I have never made this recipe with pecans. I always use ground almonds available at trader joe's. This is an AWESOME recipe but is totally dependent on your chocolate quality. I use 72% cocoa chocolate.
Also, due to corn allergy in our house, I make the caramel by melting sugar over the stove and slowly adding cream to the melted sugar until it is the right consistency - and don't even bother with butter. It's not necessary if you make a sugar/cream caramel.
In any case, this is one of my all time favourite decadent desserts. I have been making it for almost 7 years, since I first discovered it on this site.
