How many people does this recipe provide for?


How do you pre-prepare this? make the batter and fridge it, ready for the hot water stage to pour on as I sit down to eat? or am I better precooking and reheating?


It does really get weird when we add the sauce to the batter.


Woke up this afternoon at a not so respectable time, with a serious crave for chocolate. Very. Serious. Crave. Recipe by Sorted, slightly adapted (coffee liqueur and normal hazelnuts instead of toasted ones). Give in. It's awesome. It's sweater season anyway, you can have a kale smoothie when the nice weather comes again. GIVE IN.


Thank goodness it's winter again. I can enjoy this, and just hide in an ever bigger sweater throughout the season. KEEP YOUR KALE SMOOTHIE SUMMER! I'M GONE IN CHOCOLATE-HEAVEN WINTER! PS: I had normal hazelnuts (as in, not toasted) and coffee liqueur (instead of hazelnut)... Oh yeah, now we're talking!
