Reviews forWarm Chocolate Melting Cups
"To answer the silerk question: Yes, this recipe is quite similar to a Molten Lava cake."
"I'm not sure if I made them incorrectly or if they are supposed to be NOT cake like. My cups came out very much like a pudding with a crispy crust on top. Is that right?"
"Has anyone attempted this recipe using Splenda or Splenda brown sugar as a substitute for white sugar? I'm curious if it would work...it would sure cut the calories!!773 calories in one cup of sugar...even divided it's too many for this gal's diet! How about we cut those calories to about 100 total calories from Splenda sugar? :)"
"These are soooo good! Very rich and easy to make:-}"
"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."
"Very good and easy to make. I make 10 and then put in fridge for later."
"These are incredible!!! We put the extras in the fridge and warm in the microwave, incredible!!"
"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."
"This is amazing! My family loves it!"
