"Delicious & moist! I was unsure on the consistency so I added 2 eggs. It got high, but didn't overflow. I might use just 1 egg next time. Anyway, it was fabulous! On the top I used a lesser amount of chips & added coconut & dark chocolate shavings :)."

"I took this to a small neighborhood potluck today. I figured that with all the desserts there, this wouldn't get much attention. Wrong! It's great. People went back for seconds and thirds. Very easy and absolutely delicious."
