“This is a truly decadent dessert. Tread with caution though as this is a very rich dessert (a heart attack waiting to happen - though you might think it was well worth it when you try this). A true chocolate lover's delight, but go easy - my brother-in-law had almost the entire bombe in one sitting and truly regretted the after effects.”
