Top Review by Montana Heart Song

I did add the beaten egg yolks, margarine and the chocolate and cooked. I felt the egg yolks should be cooked for health safety. I used shortcakes, usually used for fresh strawberries with whipped cream, but I soaked the shortcakes and followed the recipe. Very rich! Very good! A centerpiece for a celebration! Thanks for posting!
