250g unsalted butter

* the lady who gave me the recipe says she always uses real chocolate, not cooking chocolate.
i used white chocolate brown sugar and butterscotch schnapps for a white / caramel mud cake.
this is the recipe i use to make our birthday cakes for decorating. i make it in a large round tin (maybe about 30cm across). I'll put some pics in of some of the cakes i've made for the kids' parties :D because it's so rich it goes for a lot of people.
