Wow - this was rich! It was more like a cake-like top with a warm pudding middle (and I made it in a larger bowl (like a cereal bowl) so it was spread out. I might cook it more next time.

Also, I only used 3 t. Splenda - I'm a sugarholic but most of these recipes come out too sweet for me so I've been cutting the Splenda. Next time I'm going to mix it and pour into 2 glass ramekins because it is so rich - 1/2 a serving would do it for me.

WOW!! This is good! I didn't have any SF syrup, so I added some skim milk and some vanilla extract. SOOOOO good.

This, unfortunately, didn't work for me. It didn't blend well after mixing the SB and cocoa powder and turned out more like chocolate chunks with egg "subtance". I think that I'll add some more of the liquids first next time and then the cocoa. Will try again tomorrow. :)

Yum!

This is the first dessert I've tried that really satisfied my chocoholicosity.

I upped the Smart Balance to 2T, used half an egg (beaten first so it's easy to separate), cut down on the splenda, and added a splash of vanilla. Very tasty.

If you add unsweetened applesauce the splenda amounts can be cut along with the yolk in the egg.

Edited by Ruthxxx: The applesauce is allowed only on Phase II. It does reduce the calories and fat content.

Eh, it had a good chocolate flavor, but the texture was kind of weird...sort of like scrambled eggs, which threw me off. maybe i should try making it with milk instead of the syrup.

I also had a problem with mixing - but I got my mini whisk and whisked away until it was all blended in ;). I would say this was alright, next time I might try only half of an egg, it was quite eggy. This definitely is not like the real thing, however it did hit the spot and it will hold me over until my next chocolate craving!

I have looked at this recipe for weeks and was very skeptical. Tonight I had a sweet craving that would not go away, so I tried it. Fantastic! I'm eating with a tiny spoon (makes it last longer...lol) and a glass of milk. I can't believe how much better it is that what I had expected. I ended up cooking it for about 20 seconds longer to avoid the "pudding" consistency. Worked wonders! Thabnks for posting. I think this will go into the holiday arsenal...lol

this was yummy! I added 2 tsp pb, and forgot the milk, but it really hit the spot!

I made TWO tonight hehe... with egg whites, though the second time around I realized I had unsweetened apple sauce, and that one was noticably better. But overall I LOVED it. Thanks!

OMG, I am totally failing this whole going back to Phase I thing. I made this and used unsweetened Applesauce...duh. Guess I'll have to try it tomorrow the RIGHT way. For the record, though, it was good.

When I make it again, with egg, I will more than likely put my sugar-free syrup in first and THEN the egg in an attempt to temper it. Throwing the egg into a warm/hot margarine/cocoa powder mixture is more than likely why some of you ladies got the scrambled egg effect. ;)

Hey guys,

I made a few mods to this recipe that worked out really well-

Subbed 1 tablespoon macadamia oil for the margarine
Added some powdered vanilla bean and a pinch of salt
Added 2 tablespoons fat free ricotta cheese
Heated the oven to 375-400 and baked in a pyrex ramekin

I ended up getting a great mousse-y flavor this way. I made it to 10 days of SB Phase 1 without any craving for sweets (usually indulge in fruit) but the last 2 days have been killer! Today is my last day :carrot:

Oh, and I splurged on the Scharfenberger unsweetened cocoa.

Thank you so much to the original poster of this recipe!

Just wanted to add that I did *like* this chocolate recipe.

I made a modification of completely removing the chocolate and adding two TBS of pure PUMPKIN PUREE, cinnamon (only pumpkin pie type of spice on hand) and cooked in microwave for 3 minutes.

Freakin AWESOME!

Just made this. I really like it, I like the texture, too. Great for cravings and I feel a little naughty :-)

I wonder if you could use NSA Nesquick or NSA Cocoa? I'd consider subbing Pumpkin or greek yogurt for the Smart balance

Just tried this for the first time. Used almond milk. It wasn't very sweet so next time I might do 1/2 milk and 1/2 syrup. Or add some vanilla. I think this will be good for chocolate cravings.

I love this recipe. I always use milk rather than SF syrup, and mix very well. YUM!
