    I made this and subsituted splenda for the sugar and splenda brown sugar blend for the brown sugar. I also used skim milk which changed the calores to 178 per serving. It tasted great too! Esp with vanilla ice cream! - 2/17/09

    I was afraid to make too many substitutions because I thought it would change it too much. But I am glad to see that you did it and think it is still ok and for the difference in calories I am going to try it that way next time. Thanks!

    I made this for my family for Valentine's day. It was simple to make and really fast to put together. I thought it was even better the next day, so next time I may make it a little early. Thanks for sharing! - 2/16/09

    omgosh this was awesome. Although I messed up and put brown sugar in the batter instead of white, could taste the difference, it still had a good flavor even after the 3rd day infact I think it was better. Definantely took care of my choc craving and DH loved it also. Absolutely making again! - 8/6/09

  • this was great! It totally quelled my chocolate craving.I did try another members suggestion of using splenda instead of sugar and splenda brown sugar blend instead of brown sugar and it came out just lovely.
