  1. Thank you!!! I can’t wait to try this recipe. I have others, but this one sounds fabulous!!!

  2. This a family favorite. I learned that if I pour the hot water into a tablespoon bowl it will deflect the flow and avoid making a hole in the batter. Stacy is correct—the ice cream is a must.

  3. Question: Did I read the recipe wrong, or miss something? In the ingredients list-you listed 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder, besides the other 1/4 c., but in directions, you only mentioned using 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder (besides the other 1/4 c.)? I hope you can understand what I’ve asked, lol !..sure do want to make this! Thank you very much for your help.

  4. Seriously, gooey chocolate is the best! Yum!

  6. I have a new Advantium 240 OTR I’m learning how to use. How would I determine cook times for this yummy recipe?
