This is just FANTASTIC!!! So easy too. I brought this to my brother's house for a holiday dinner with 10 people, everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. They couldn't believe it was so easy to make. I made a double batch and what small amount was left I was not allowed to take home, my brother couldn't wait to finish it off later. I would give it TEN STARS if I could! You won't regret making this.

I have made this twice for company and it was an outrageously delicious desert. Everyone raved about it. I used the recipe just as printed and it came out looking juat like the picture. A couple of people asked how I got the topping to come out so shinney. It really was a big hit and I will keep this recipe in my favorites box with a sheet protector so I don't mess it up! LOL (I'm a guy that was a welder and equipment repairman before I retired.)
