Making this at the moment and there is no way its going to set, it's way too runny! Nice flavour but not sure how to salvage it?!

Very disappointed - still not set after over 24 hours - thank goodness I had a standby desert to serve last nigh.

This was a great success. Easy to make (and useful that you can make it the day before) and really impressive served in coffee cups with Amaretti biscuits. One to use time and again for dinner parties.

I was very disappointed as this did not set and was so runny I threw it away - any comments as to why as I followed the recipe to the last letter!

Great little dessert, easy to make and serving in espresso cups gives it that wow factor. It is very rich so you do not need to serve a lot per person. I served extra cream in a bowl on the table as all the dark chocolate and coffee can be a too bitter for some.

200gms of 86% chocolate was far to much, it tasted very bitter, not sure i would make again
