Nah.

the answer is no, they are both adjectives pertaining to chocolate containing cocoa solids/mass of 40% or more

massive difference. plain is yummy, milk is not. milk is sweeter, plain has a much higher cocoa content

Oh Suzy - DD is baking you brownies (for the first time)

Any expert hints or tips for her?

I am sitting in the lounge on MN dreading what the kitchen will look like

observe the cracked puddle of mud effect, do not let them go too spongy

and take all the credit, lap it up as you hand the plate round

We are struggling with assembling/weighing the ingredients atm - each one has to be discussed/debated and cogitated - I doubt we will ever get to the baking stage - she goes to bed at 7:30

We were thinking of giving you the credit/blame depending upon how it turns out

Plain and dark are the same (I've noticed dark is becoming the preferred word these days)

Milk chocolate is different.

Milk chocolate shouldn't be called chocolate - it's just stuff

KatyMac Sat 22-Mar-08 17:44:35

Sorry meant to say "SW - yes that's it exactly"

OK it just came out the oven & MUD is very much the description

It's not sweet enough (70%)

Oh dear
