I am a fan of Thao’s expertise and efficiency when making recipes. I focus so much when I’m in the kitchen and lose track of time. Having to use whole eggs and the chocolate as base recipe makes baking these so much easier! It tastes divine as well! It’s moist and sort of fudgy. This will definitely be my go-to recipe. I can’t wait for the Vanilla bundle online class. Thanks so much, Thao! ????
