My favorite "dripping" chocolate is the Sarah Bernhardt recipe on this site. I'll do a search for it and post the link. I used it on several "dripping" cakes in my gallery (that sounds kind of gross but they are so yummy) and it really works great!! Here's one of them:

I'm a newbie (both to CC and to cakes) and I used the SarahB. recipe to pour over a German Chocolate Cake I made for my dad's birthday tonight, and it turned out beautifully. Simple recipe and a wonderfully finished look.

I use a very basic recipe but my tip would be is put the chocolate pieces in a container with a spout. I found these easier to make the nice drippings down the side.
