Story Behind this Recipe

Depending on how it's kept and handled, chocolate can be prone to melting. So, depending on the situation, sometimes I make baked sweets.

Chocolate-flavored sweets tend to be so dark in color... that's when I was inspired to make something more colorful.

I made this a simple and basic recipe.
It becomes more moist if you make it a few days beforehand.
