"So rich, like fudge on a spoon, I get a spoon full out once a day: ) If the egg cooks, just push through a seive, or strainer."

"This is heavenly. The first time I made it, I used the thermometer but by the time it got to 160 it curdled. The next time, I didn't use the thermometer and used the spoon. Don't let it boil, is the key. Oh yeah, deboogie the egg first!"

"the first time I made this recipe was for company. Both the adults and the kids loved it. It was so rich you only needed a little bit but the kids didn't want to stop eating it. I got several requests for the recipe."
