Let it be sweet: chocolate!

Sweet and seductive: I'm talking chocolate of course!
Nothing has this reputation of comfort and sweetness more like chocolate and today I selected some gifts for you that convey that feeling of being loved (it does that, even though you can't actually eat the stuff presented here ...)

In US German chocolate cake , originally known as German's chocolate cake , is a layered chocolate cake filled and topped with a coconut -pecan frosting. It owes its name to American Sam German, who developed a brand of dark baking chocolate used for the cake. Sweet baking chocolate is traditionally used for the chocolate flavor in the actual cake, but few recipes call for it today. The filling and/or topping is a caramel made with egg yolks and evaporated milk ; once the caramel is cooked, coconut and pecans are stirred in. Occasionally, a chocolate frosting is spread on the sides of the cake and piped around the circumference of the layers to hold in the filling. Maraschino cherries are occasionally added as a garnish.
