triple chocolate mess

I made this for the girls when they were home for the holidays. It’s a favorite. When I take it to a church dinner, I take a bucket of vanilla ice cream to serve with it. So moist and delicious! I first had this dessert when my home extension group went to The Chocolate Affair, a gourmet chocolate shop / bed & breakfast for an evening tour. They served this. Soooo good!

Wish I’d taken a better picture of it with some ice cream, but we were too busy eating it to take pictures…got this one later.

    Ooh, sounds yummy! How do you slice/serve it? Does it have to be unmolded out of the crockpot, or do you just bring the whole pot to an event?

    Sherry, I take it in the crock pot and use a large spoon for dipping servings. I did see one picture online of one that someone had turned out of their crock pot. Here:

    But I’ve never done that myself. We serve it with vanilla ice cream. So yum! ~~Rhonda

    I don’t like sour cream and was wondering if there is a substitute for it. It look delicious and would love to make it without sour cream.

    Yogurt is always a good substitute for sour cream.

    Here’s a site with other sour cream substitutes.
