Top Review by internetnut

I have not tried this recipe. I got my copy from a community cookbook. My copy is slightly different. My copy calls for 8oz chocolate chips for the filling. For the cakes it calls for 1/2 tsp salt. The rest is the same. Bake time is slightly different it calls to bake these for 20 minutes. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)
