  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Instant ClearJel® or cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup Double-Dutch Dark Cocoa or Dutch-process cocoa

FILLING
  • 2 cups chopped semisweet chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup cream (light, whipping, or heavy) or milk, or a combination*
