    Crocheting Mama's Note:

    These were originally from a Betty Crocker cookbook. I usually make them with milk chocolate chips for the 1st cup and semi-sweet for the 2nd cup.

      Fabulous!!!!!!! It even gave me the opportunity to use up the Grand Marnier I had on hand for the Zaar souffle challenge! It did't turn me into a chocolatier but, I'm not so nervous about chocolate anymore!! Thank you my captain!! Zaar III - We are ZBest Chefs!!
