Can't figure out what I did wrong. Made the filling twice. The first time, I failed to temper the eggs with the melted butter so the eggs curdled. I'm an experienced baker but I just went by the recipe. The second time, I tempered the eggs with the butter but the chocolate did not integrate with the butter/egg mixture. I went ahead and baked them anyway but had to throw them out. This is the first time I have failed with a Southern Living recipe. Wouldn't even attempt this one again. If anyone else tries it and succeeds, I'd like to know.
