This is a too die for dessert. Try eating just one it won't happen. Has a few steps but so worth it.

This one packs a real flavor punch. Admittedly, it took a few members of the Kitchen Crew a taste or two to make sense of the flavors, but we succeeded in devouring the rest of the batch in short order. It's now become a kitchen favorite. Pecans or cashews would be good in this as well - Give it a try! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
