I spend my summers experimenting on my family. I was trying to find a recipe to duplicate one I had in a restaurant. So, thank goodness Taste of Home had a good recipe. This one came up and almost did in my family due to it's extreme richness, but many said it was worth it. I ended up having my students make it for a luncheon they hosted.
