The only time I ever had Chicken Mole, I didn't like it, but this looks like it would be good. Thanks!

I haven't tried it yet, but all the flavors/ingredients, sound soooo good. Thanx Barbara.

Hmm, did wonder about the "sweet" baking chocolate. Thought baking chocolate had a bland/bitter? taste. You can see I'm not an expert baker.
