This dense, fudgy chocolate cake needs no embellishment, but adding chopped Snickers bars take it to another level. Another plus: extra cocoa powder sprinkled on at the end gives it an elegant look and even more chocolate flavor. If it’s true decadence you’re after, serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
