Hello from Lebanon!

I just made this recipe for the third time. My family just loved it and my friends wouldn't even believe that it wasn't store-bought. Thank you so much!

I used Poulain dark chocolate the first two times. This time I used Hershey's dark chocolate chips. The cake's currently in the freezer, but I'm sure it will be just as good.

Also I use 30 biscuits instead of 36 so the cake is a little more dense, but that's up to taste.
