*This is a great recipe if your making it for a large group or party, you can make them ahead of time, leave in the fridge until your ready to eat, then let set out to room temperature. They taste best at room temperature.

*These are truly one of my all time favorite desserts, the cake is moist and the frosting gives it that extra rich chocolate taste. Enjoy!
