A friend a while back gave me this recipe after we had dinner at her house and she made this dessert. I had to have the recipe before we left for home. Oh my; what a great dessert. The only thing I changed in it was I added butterscotch chips. And Woody had me add a scoop of ice cream on top. We love it so much that I made it for Thanksgiving this year and it didn't last the weekend. It was so great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. MMMMMMMMM!!!!! I called my friend and told her how I changed her recipe just a little and she is going to try it my way next time she makes it.
