MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 17, 2014

Every time I make these the top comes off & the bottom is too cooked!! What the heck am I doing wrong? I will not give up on these for they are just too good!! The first time I made these they were a mess but the got eaten, & those who ate them said 'mess or not they are the very good'. I bake for a living so if anyone can help me with these, I would appreciate it. Thank You!!

Made it for the chocolate lovers in my office a couple of years ago and they raved about it. It's simple, but looks elegant. I moved recently and misplaced my recipe, so was glad to be able to replace it.

These were great! I disagree with peeweemow, i think just a drizzle of the ganache wouldnt be enough!

this was sooo good. only thing i would change for next time....cause there WILL be a next time... is use a drizzle of the ganash top. the recipe makes it a little too rich. but all in all it was awsome.
