Re: drink in the new year


hum... mine turn out like a cake brownie, but I only use about a Tbsp of choc
chips instead of 3 and do add nuts too.
 
It may not be the best chocolate cake you ever ate, but it is quick, doesn't
use a zillion things you have to clean up afterwards, and gets me past that 'I
need chocolate' thing.  Kids love watching it rise above the mug thinking it
will make a mess.... so far, knock on wood, non have.
