While I gave a very negative rating yesterday, I got to eat it today and I guess I made the correct additions, because it was delicious. Instead of throwing the recipe away, I will make my notes and continue to make. Please correct the recipe. Thank you!!!

The butter to melt with the chocolate was not even listed in the ingredient list. I used my own judgment. There isn't enough batter to put 1/2" in each dish. I baked for 17 minutes and still no crack in the top. I will be serving these tonight and will let you know the results. I consider myself as advanced cook, but this recipe threw me.
