    Ok but i felt it didn't have much flavour  -  03 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made and brought this to a family Chistmas gathering a few weeks ago, it was amazing! Their dog got ahold of the leftovers and I was so dissappointed (the dog is okay). The coffee makes the chocolate flavor so much richer and darker. I am remaking another one tonight. I had to use an egg replacer for my daughters allergies which has me very nervous as it didn't really set up as well as egg whites, so we'll see, fingers crossed.  -  19 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was fantastic! love the coffee flavor and since I'm not to fond of chocolate I cut the cocoa in half and I love the flavor of mallasses so I used half corn syrup and half mollasses and it was delicious I definintly recommend it!  -  18 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
