    I have a question before I start... How much does a 'family block' weigh? And can I use couverture or good quality dark chocolate? (I usually buy Haigh's.)  -  29 Jan 2010

    After craving chocolate all day, this is exactly the recipe I was looking for! Following advice from a friend, I tried this recipe replacing 3/4 cup white sugar with brown sugar, and added 1 tsp almond essence to give a deeper flavour. The result was excellent and not as sweet as other brown recipes I've tried. However, it did take 40-45min for mine to that possibly from using the brown sugar, or maybe I had a smaller pan than suggested?  -  13 Mar 2010
