omigosh thank you so much kitchenelf!! i'm previewing them right now. i'll see what i can do to adapt them to the recipe i was planning to use: 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, 8 oz. mascarpone, 1-1/4 c. heavy cream, 2 egg yolks,etc. it serves around 5 people generously. i'm planning to make enough for 15 people. this means i will double the recipe. i'm weary of recipes that use insane amounts of egg yolks AND cream, just because i don't want it to be too rich or heavy. but again... THANK YOU SO MUCH!
