  1. Yum, what's not to like about bittersweet hot chocolate. So decadent, rich, thick, creamy and devine. Made exactly as written wouldn't change a thing. Thanks so much for sharing....dh even had a cup, because he said it looked too good to pass up. Kudos to you.
  2. Oh my is this ever a rich little treat!!! I used 3/4 of bittersweet and 1/4 of semisweet chocolate to make my one serving. I then just used whipped cream for the topping as this is already very sweet, but soooo delicious!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for I Recommend Tag.
  3. This was a nice treat for a cold night (it's only 29, brrrrr). Even using 70% dark chocolate I find it a bit sweet for my taste, so would cut the sugar at least in half. Made for PRMRT
