You can't beat a cake made with butter! Not the greatest chocolate buns ive made. Wouldn't make again - 23 Aug 2011


The minnies have just completed the taste test and these are a big hit! So easy and super quick, these will deffinitely become a regular! Great for the children to make too. I didn't have any chocolate flakes, but my daughter kindly donated a leftover Easter egg, which we broke up and added instead. - 22 May 2011


These were really nice and easy/quick to make! We didn't have any choc flakes so I left them out and put a choc button on top of each one, lovely! Not as nice as unhealthy chocolate cakes but definitely worth making if you want a sweet fix with a lot less fat! - 08 Jan 2011
