Delicious topping!

This was a very tasty recipe and we especially loved the orange flavor. I thought the texture would be a little creamier, but the flavor was very good.

I've never had anything like this before and WOW it was great. Dessert with a little kick. Not sure what the rest of the family will think. But I like it, more for me if they don't like it.
