Coffee and chocolate together are a match made in heaven! The little bit of bitterness in the coffee really brings out the chocolate flavor without it being too sweet. This would be great to serve on a brunch table, or as a dessert. I'll have to wash off my old dusty bundt pan and make this really soon!
