    Flourless Dark Chocolate Espresso Fudge Cake

    Always in search of the “perfect” flourless chocolate espresso anything I made this for election night.  Sometimes the best remedy for stress is a little bit of chocolate! We thought this turned out well.   Really moist and with just the right amount of sweetness to be topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with strawberries.  If you end up trying it please come back and let me know how it turned out!
