  1. Three minutes in the microwave made for a burned mess! I repeated this, stirring after one minute and then letting it cook one minute more. Two minutes was much better for my microwave. Just tasted the finished product…the texture is a little sugary, not as creamy as I hoped. So glad I didn’t give these away without trying the recipe myself!

  2. This recipe failed miserably. After a minute and a half I could smell burning and my microwave was filled with smoke. The chocolate and sugar actually burned a hole through my tupperware.

  3. im working on it right now doesn’t look too apealling but smells great!
    (later, i don’t really like it. and textures horrible, really grainy from the sugar.

  4. Looks like a great idea! I’m going to make these for my teachers. Thanks for the styrofoam warning!

  5. I LOVE this recipe. It’s simple, but super effective! I just tried it. Great for kids.

  6. This is a really nice idea. Perfect for a co-worker with a sweet tooth!

  7. No styrofoam in micro’s.It will melt or catch fire.Best to use ceramic mugs if possible.BTW… Haven’t tried this recipe yet but willing to try it.TY for posting it : )
