  1. For me it has too much dark chocolate – next time I’d make it with normal milk chocolate. I also used orange essence instead of vanilla to give it a slight hint of orange. For the ganache I used a block of dark chocolate and 3/4 cup cream. My partner really loved it so he will be eating most of it. Was a bit rich for me but will definitely try again without the dark chocolate.
