    Very Good
    Not bad for what it is, it certainly works. I needed to put some choc syrup on it after it was cooked to like it, but then it was good. It would be great with something like low fat cool whip, or a scoop of vanilla low fat ice cream or fozen yogurt. I tried it just out of curiosity and it is fine. - 11/13/08

    Okay-I used sugar free choc. syrup instead of choc. chips. This def. needs some REAL choc. I did use dark choc. powder instead of reg--maybe that was the difference? - 9/23/08

    This was AWESOME. There needs to be way more low calorie one-serving desserts! I've already started thinking of variations... yummy :) - 9/19/08

    LOL! With the chocolate chips it was 500+ calories and a scary amount of fat! Try some light chocolate syrup instead!
