      Thank you! I tore this recipe out of the Better Homes and Gardens Magazine in 2006 to make for my daughter's birthday, which happened to fall on Thanksgiving that year. It was such a huge hit, I've been making it every year since. When I went to pull it out this year, I could find only the page with the picture, not the actual recipe. My daughter, age 111) suggested "researching it on the net" Since I had the magazine page with the date, I was able to go right to this recipe because of the description. My family will be thrilled that the recipe was not lost forever! BTW, my cake has looked like both these pictures. I find that it helps to let the chocolate sit and thicken. And don't spread it, let it move slowly towards the edges of the cake. Thanks again!

      When I made this I ended up calling all the neighbors because I wanted to show it off. Also because I did not want to be alone in the house with any leftovers the next day. Chocolate and pumpkin happily combine in this delicious dessert. I garnished with blackberries, red seedless grapes and hazelnuts and almonds. It was just beautiful.
