INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. MICROWAVE 1 1/2 cups morsels in a medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth; cool to room temperature. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
