WOW! Even made lighter by using Splenda and 1 percent milk...These are VERY RICH and CREAMY and FLUFFY. They are SWEET with a nice RUM flavor and the chocolate is semi-sweet tasting. I used my electric mixer to blend the yolk mixture with the warm chocolate and then the milk and rum. I used a rubber spatula to fold in the beaten egg whites. This was like a MOUSSE. I made 3 servings and it filled three 1cup rammekins perfectly. Thanks for this WONDERFUL KEEPER recipe Amanda! Made for Beverage tag.
