A great Triple Chocolate Cake Recipe like this is truly therapy on a fork. If you have a girlfriend in need of some TLC you couldn’t find a better pick-me-up than this.

It's definitely only for serious chocoholics and I’ll admit it – I’m a serious chocoholic!

My distraction of choice is dense and rich with serious in-your-face chocolate flavor. That sums this amazing recipe up perfectly.

It’s adapted from a fabulous brownie recipe by Tish Boyle in her cookbook "The Good Cookie". If you like cookies you’ll love this book. I love to start with one recipe and morph it into something entirely different. You never know what you’ll discover along the way.

When you look at the ingredients you’ll probably do a double take at the amount of butter, but I did say this was rich and dense – definitely not a low calorie treat! Try the variations too – they are awesome.
