This is excellent and ohhhhh so rich way to get your chocolate fix! The marsala adds such a wonderful taste. This is very easy to put together. The recipe yield only 4 small ramekins. We didn't have whipped cream in the house but that would put this over the top, that and fresh raspberries! Thanks again RBS, wonderful as always!
