This Is a quick simple & easy way to satisfy your sweet tooth in a hurry. This Is the quick dessert that I always make for my husband when I don't have a dessert in the house. It can be made in under 10 minutes & my husband loves it. I first discovered I could make this in the microwave on a day when I was tired, & didn't want to stand over the stove. I put the mixture in the microwave for 3 minutes, then for 3 minutes 2 more additional times & it worked. It was creamy & smooth, & I added some to a bowl while hot & topped it with whipped topping, & chocolate sprinkles & my hubby loved it
