      guys, i completely forgot about the risks associated with eggs that are not fully cooked...salmonella. so please if you are not buying pasteurized eggs please be sure of the risk to young children, the elderly, and those whose health are compromised. :)

      very good and verrry rich! This one is NOT for someone who is looking for a chocolate dessert with a "light" texture. You are drenched in chocolate with each bite.
