The only hard part in this recipe is waiting for it to cool.  If we aren’t careful, we often will see smudge marks on the top where our youngest daughter has “checked” to see if it was ready yet.   However, this is not just a children’s dessert, it is an elegant ending to an adult meal.  The semisweet chocolate and the amaretti cookies make for a dish that is for a sophisticated palate.  Although our youngest would correctly say that her palate has been educated enough to enjoy anything with dark chocolate.
