“This is from "The Best of Ukrainian Cuisine". It shares ingredients with a couple other recipes, but the technique is unique and sounds very good. I haven't made it yet. I don't know if the "melted chocolate" is supposed to be semisweet or unsweetened. I intend on asking the Dessert Forum before I make it; if you get to it first, please ask them rather than potentially wasting your time and ingredients.”
