As a chocoholic, I found this too mildly flavored, hence the middling rating. If I were to make it again, I would increase the amount of chocolate and sugar by at least 25%. I used standard granulated sugar and beat 8 minutes after the addition of each egg; there was no hint of graininess - I see no need to buy a special sugar or to process the sugar if one follows the original instructions on beating time. I would also alter the ingredients to specify 50% unsalted butter. A bit of salt accentuates chocolate flavors, but there is too much in a full cup of salted butter. With a stronger chocolate and less salty flavor, I think I'd happily rate it a '5' . . . but not as the recipe is now.
