"This was the first recipe I made from the collection "Desserts for Two" and it was a hit. My husband loved it and the size was perfect - a little something sweet for after dinner, but no leftovers to tempt us to eat more. I will definitely make this again sometime."

"Very good. A perfect "couples" dessert. A great end to our Valentine's Day meal."

"This is the best and so easy! My guests loved it and my husband is asking for more. I am going to try and double the ingredients because this only makes 2 servings and is just not enough! I am hoping that doubling everything will work out but I am a little hesitant to double the cocoa and I note that someone made it in a 8" square pan and said not to double the topping. So, I'll work with that. But a note, for the first batch I did not have Ramekins so I put it in a small dish. Serving it up was not as pretty so I definitely feel the Ramekins are well worth it."
