If you like chocolate a lot, you will enjoy this recipe. My kids would have liked to rate it 5 stars while my husband and I would have rated it 3 stars, "good, solid recipe." We averaged it to 4 stars. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written except for putting pecans on only half of the pan. As with any 9X13 dessert, this is a great dish to share with another family. We gave half of it away so we didn't have to eat all those calories ourselves. Not a healthy dish at all!
