Shotts Fudgy Chocolate Layer Cake

After reading a brief article about the all-American chocolatier, Andrew Shotts, I wanted to try one of his decadent recipes that helped him earn his spot among the “Top 10 Artisanal Chocolatier” by USA Today. I can honestly say, hands down, this is the best chocolate cake I have ever made and probably will ever make. WARNING: If you are not a fan of incredibly moist and tender, rich but light, and fudgy but creamy chocolate cakes then this dessert is certainly NOT for you. If you are… then buckle your seat belt this is pure chocolate ecstasy. Use the highest quality chocolate and cocoa you can find. MAKE AHEAD: The cake will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3 days (covered). Bring to room temperature before slicing.
