    Rich

    JANICE GAREY from TERRE HAUTE, IN

    This is a real hit in our house. My niece and I first shared one because it is very rich, then later went back and had one each! My husband soon got the message if he wanted one, he's better get to it!

    This recipe is too easy and too delicious not to make as often as your diet will allow it! So silky and creamy that no one could resist the temptation to indulge. This recipe goes into "my favorites box".
