Don’t Be Surprised When Your Guests Cry Out Encore After Just One Bite of This No-Bake Dessert

I love the layers in this yummy chocolate cake. The crust just tastes so decadent. Because I wanted it to have a classy feel I decided to make this in two spring form pans and slice into wedges. I drizzled each plate with a few strands of chocolate before putting the slice on the plate. It was so beautiful that people actually thought the piano teacher had a professional bring in the dessert!

The best part was watching my daughter play her piece perfectly. After hours of practice she hit every note just right. All the hours of practicing paid off.
