Notes

I really don't remember where I got this recipe....But it is delicious and so rich and chewy ...You'll love it!

What wattage of microwave did you use? I know the higher the wattage the less the cooking time. I read somewhere that most recipes have a standard wattage of 700 watts. My oven is 1200 watts.
