Hi Jane-
That's absolutely me..but it's nice to try to cut back on those mean calories!

Lyn said...

Hi Butternut-
I think more people agree about chocolate than anything else!

It is seriously indulging. Just looking at the photo makes me drool. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Greetings to a Cuban-

Oh, gosh. I think I'm going to have to get out one of my little Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares... (wiping slobber off with my sleeve)

Jeane Myers said...

OMG! I have to get some ramekins! I want some, NOW! this looks so good and may I say, I love your new header!

Lyn said...

Hi Willow-
And to add to your treats, you gotta get Lindt Xtra dark truffles, in the shiny bag. Baking, shmaking, this'll do it every time!

Lyn said...

Hi Jeane-
I always want some NOW! Chocolates too...haha...
Thanks about the header..It seems quite a task to come up with one!

Hi Lyn,

I've tried something similar once but it was just one mix that separates during cooking. Great gooey centre! I hope you're doing extra laps of Central Park?!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
You're going to hate me..I'm one of those people who's always been UNDERweight! The only laps I do is lapping it up... Will be WATCHING the NY Marathon on Sunday.
I like your choc mix..
