Many years ago, my aunt made this for me and I made it for my kids and it's been a family favorite ever since. My daughter served it at her Bunco party and got raves about it, even though it wasn't completly defrosted because she forgot to take it out ahead time. The name is a little deceiving but when you make it, you will know why it is named this way. It's easy to make but hard to wait until it is frozen and even harder when you have to wait until you can cut into it. Let me know what you think about it.
