Is this supposed to be a dessert, or what ? Sounds positively weird. The only reason I gave it a "2" and not a "1" is that I trust Batali's judgement... maybe!

Sounds absolutely delicious, but all that saturated fat !!!

Sounds super -- but be careful about the chocolate bits -- I just bought some, and the nice people have reduced the package size from 12 oz. to 10 oz. Which will make a BIG difference in the way the coating sets up."

Not very good. I used all bittersweet chocolate, and it STILL came out toothachingly sweet.

Also, having read the other reviews, I reduced the amount of butter, but that made the mixture very heavy - it felt like it was on the edge of seizing.

I'm going back to the traditional method, i.e. ganache.
