Miss Annie, these are super! BF had a Christmas morning tradition with his ex of this year he arrives at my place with of all things a popover pan! I made plain ones and these, but these were by far the most outstanding. I used grated Gharadelli(sp) and we had with strawberry jam. BF who is by no means a chocolate person, said these popovers are AWESOME. Thats a plus in my book...TY

MMM Miss Annie, I so enjoyed making these, since they were SO easy and tasted even better. We really like popovers and I have never made them with chocolate, what an excellent treat! I did what you suggested and served them with fresh strawberries, they were a BIG hit with my family. THANKS!
