At my Aunt Irene's 80th Birthday Party, I met Traci. It turned out that she's my cousin's daughter's boyfriend's cousin's wife, so we're practically family! I knew we were kindred spirits when she said she'd share the recipe for this delicious sweet dip and was even willing for me to share it.

Imagine my surprise when this ball of deliciousness wasn't made with ricotta or mascarpone, as expected.

So thanks, Traci, and welcome to the family. I can't wait to see what you bring to the next family get-together! =^..^=
