"I used half brown sugar and half white sugar, a dash of salt, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, and added 1/4 cup chocolate chips to thicken and add a richer chocolate flavor. It turned out great."

"Not sure what I did wrong but could NOT get the sugar to dissolve. It tasted wonderful but texture was not up to par."
