Top Review by Chef Karen 3

I would put zero stars. I am a fairly good baker and I don't know what happened to this recipe. It seemed like alot of liquid, but I asummed that bakingfanatic knew what she printed. This bubbled over in my oven, making a huge mess. Burned all over bottom of my oven. Made smoke alarms go off. What a mess!!!! Plus the fact she didn't say if pudding mix should be instant or not. No directions for when the choco. should be added. All around mess. I would not recommend. Sorry bakingfanatic. I would appreciate it if you would reprint and let me know what or if I did anything wrong. Karen
