    PaulaG's Note:

    When cooked the sugar becomes crunchy and adds an elegant finish. This recipe was printed in the March 2003 edition of Bon Appetit and is reported to be served at the Red Fish Grill in New Orleans. I made this for my best friends birthday bash last year. Not low in anything!

      DELICIOUS! Made this with all whole milk and added pecans. I replaced the sugar sprinkled on top with brown sugar instead. Loved it. Thanks for sharing! =)

      We loved it. I used 1 cup of low fat vanilla yogurt and 1 cup of low fat milk intead of the whipping cream and milk. Also used up some old Easter chocolate that was in the freezer. My kids hate crusts, so I cut them off and throw them into a freezer bag until I need them. So this was a great recipe to use up stuff. The kids really loved it.

      We used regular milk since that was all that was available. I added a pat of butter to the melting chocolate as well. The results were so delicious! It is rich and creamy with a crunchy topping from the sugar. Great tasting cold or warm from the oven with cream or Cool Whip! Thanks for posting!
