      FOUR tablespoons of sugar O_o ? That things half sugar *faints* ...fun idea though :D Almost makes me want a microwave. Although I guess it would work with an oven if the cup and the time was right....

      My Mouth is Watering. This is a great Idea. It is so much better than buying those "Warm Delights" from the grocery store. Great Job.

      Fantastic, I will have to try this recipe, the one I've used before calls for dry milk, which makes the lactose content too high for my sensitive tummy. :) Where your recipe says "2 Tbsp.vegetable" though, does that mean vegetable oil or something else?

      great gift idea and fun for when I need my chocolate fix!
