"These cups were wonderful. I like that it makes 10 cups: this is great for during the holidays or when the family comes over. They are warm and creamy in the center and crispy on the edges. The chocolate is so smooth and wonderful! I like to sprinkle a little powdered sugar and a raspberry on top when serving."

"This is an absolutely incredible dessert! Such a deep, rich chocolate flavor and totally worth the splurge. However, the calorie count on here is way wrong. I ran it through 2 different recipe builders, and it's closer to 200 calories each for 10 servings. Still worth it, they are soooo good! UPDATE: I see that the nutrition stats for this recipe have been modified, so this seems accurate now at 197 calories. So good....even to make ahead, put them in the fridge & reheat in microwave, they are still delicious! Don't skip the coffee....even if you don't like coffee, you can't taste it. It just intensifies the chocolate flavor."
