I've made this a few times over the past few years and i have to say it is DIVINE. The only bad thing i have to say about it, is that I can't stop eating it! I try to only make it for get togethers to prevent myself from eating the entire batch. I can't believe no one has left a review on here! People need to see this recipe!! It is the best dessert ever!! Thanks you so much! from Toronto, Canada
