Jan 23, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Far too easy to make when you want a quick snack. I feel I might make this more often than I should.
Must say, it turned out. But took slightly longer than 2 min. Check through the middle to make sure it's done.

The chocolate and topping turned out well. But the cupcakes sunk in the middle - in the oven before they were done baking. I'm an experienced baker and don't ever recall having this problem with a recipe. Well not since I was 10 years old.
Found the writing on the recipe to be ambiguous, and perhaps that's where I ran into issues. Not...

Nice recipe. Not as heavy as traditional mayonaise coleslaws. But not as tart as a pickled slaw - which I like, but not all the time.
Will make this again...and again..."

Actually, quite good. But found it didn't need as much salt as the recipe called for. Perhaps it depends on the type of salt used, or the saltiness/acidity of the mustard.
Generally, I'm not a fan of potato salads (except my mom's!). This one is good too. Really good."

Really, really good. Only gave 4 stars because I had to cool it a little longer after adding the second part of the 1/2 and 1/2 to thicken it up sufficiently. Taste wise - it's a 5."

Love this. My go to "green salad" when it's winter and the greens aren't looking so nice in the stores.

Was skeptical before trying this recipe. Most cakes have far more oil/fat/butter than this one does. And, it looked too easy. It was really moist and flavorful. It does need a tart apple. Otherwise, yes, it will be too sweet. Turbinado sugar on top gave it a nice bit of texture.""

Made this a week ago and my husband called it, "Possibly the best pasta he's ever had." He liked it so much that he agreed to try cooking it on his own yesterday. (I'm not sure he's ever done much more than boil water in the past.) It turned out fabulous. He now has a recipe book that has one recipe in it - this one. And he is willing to try...

Awesome recipe and very flexible. Can remove ingredients to make it kid friendly.

Works really well with pears and pear nectar too!
