    I made these little sinful-cakes last night to celebrate an accomplishment for my son versus paying $6 at a restaurant for one single cake.

    OH MY STINKING_HECK!!!! These are so good...if you like chocolate. :D

    But they are HUGE. One cake would be more than enough for my DH and I to share with our boys. But of course, last night, we each ate half of one (oooooohhhhhhhh)

    My 5 yr old son helped me make them, so they weren't hard at all. We did them in the oven just so they'd be nice and warm by the time my DH and DS8 got home from an errand. Our hands got a little tired from grinding the nuts in the Rotary Grater (not a big fan of the grater...I think it's too big for my hands) - I'd probably chop the heck out of the nuts with my Food Chopper next time, but other than that, I can't think of anything I'd change.

    Just wanted to warn you though. I noticed AFTER I made them, that 1 cake (considered a serving :eek:) has 640 calories, 38 g of Fat....(it comes to 15 pts if you are on Weight Watchers like I am...*errr*. WAS!) Half makes it 7, and PLENTY of sinful delight.
