Chocolate on Chocolate Dessert in a Glass

This chocolate on chocolate dessert is always a good idea.

Chocolate on Chocolate Dessert in Glass

Put your fuzzy slippers on, get comfy and savor each and every bite of this heavenly dessert that’s fully loaded with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.

This delectable dessert is served in a glass so that you can see all of the rich chocolate layers with every bite.

Here are more layered desserts that are served in a glass you may like “Cherry Cheese Pie in a Glass“, “Baileys and Chocolate Raspberry Dessert” and “Bunny Bottom Dirt Cup Desserts“.

There are seven layers of chocolate to be exact, not counting the chocolate sprinkles on top.

This amazingly delicious dessert starts with a layer of chocolate pudding, then it has a layer of chocolate fudge cake that’s topped with drizzles of chocolate ganache (a quick and easy homemade chocolate sauce).

And for good measure it has another layer of chocolate fudge cake and more ganache.

Next, since chocolate cake needs frosting, this dessert is topped with a thick layer of homemade rich dark chocolate frosting, more drizzles of ganache and lastly, the chocolate sprinkles.

One thing’s for sure, it tastes REALLY good.

Normally ganache is made with cream, but in this recipe I just used milk.

I wouldn’t want this dessert to be too rich or anything….I mean with 7 layers of chocolate and all.
