    Used different ingredients. I didn't have any pecans so I used brazil nuts instead. I also poured some left over mix into individual ramekins.. and then served with strawberries and icecream.  -  15 Mar 2010


    Awesome recipe, super moist and they rose well, they look great too. I used milk chocolate instead of dark and added some cocoa (2 table spoons) to the recipe so i could have the richer chocolate taste. They turned out great =]  -  03 Feb 2012


    This is a great recipe im only 12 and did this whole recipe alone!!! btw i like cooking. Instead of dark chocolate i used white chocolate this tasted great considering the fact that i haven't tasted the it with dark chocolate. Next time i will try it wit normal dairy chocolate or dark chocolate. This is something everyone will love and is good in the morning with a cup of tea or coffe. :X  -  08 Jul 2012
