Death By Chocolate

Just had to share this. I made it for Shannon's Birthday so all the office crew could have some of this fabulous dessert. It takes a couple of days and tons of chocolate and cream but it is worth every bite. We originally tasted this delight at the Trellis restaurant in Williamsburg. It has been featured on the Food Network and lots of magazines! We had it in 2003 for my birthday when we were there with the family. My sister Carolyn went there with her family a few years later and bought the cookbook with the famous recipe featured in it. She shared it with me years ago. I only make it once in a blue moon. It takes so much time but mostly it kills in the calorie count...a mere 1350 calories per slice. 2 different mouses, ganache, brownie and chocolate meringue layers all combine to make the practically perfect dessert! I am looking forward to the next time already!
