These utilize organic pre-packaged chocolate cake mix, organic cook pudding and Ghiradelli premium baking semi-sweet chocolate. Just because I am an ingredient snob does not mean Pillsbury, dove and jello brand would not work well. Let me tell you this is like biting into the heart of chocolate heaven, this exceeds anything I have ever had in a restaurant!
