This is a delicious way to treat yourself to a decadent but extremely simple breakfast. It would also make a delicious dessert, served perhaps with a dollop of maple whipped cream.

This recipe is simple but perfect. If you are craving chocolate (or just need a pick-me-up), whip these up and eat them right from the pan. Or cut them up and share them with someone you love…if you can keep yourself from eating the entire pan yourself!
