   Hi Mukti, If you have to prepare 5 to 7 mugs, then we would suggest complete step 1 and 2 in advance. Just before serving, microwave it.

Dear Tarla, I tried your recipe and it was AWESOME!!!! Instead of the chocolate pieces, I used Hershey''s syrup, and it tasted FABULOUS!!!! It was soft and sinful and every member of the family enjoyed it. We used Hershey''s and Milkmaid to top it off as dressing. Thanks! Keep up the good work!
