"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
It is necessary to have all ingredients measured out and ready to add. Once the chocolate mixture has boiled for two minutes, them you need to work very quickly, or it will set up in the pan. If this happens, just scrape it out and use it as an ice cream topping or eat it with a spoon.

This is a favorite of Audrey's. Unfortunately, everyone else liked it, too.
