“Originally found on the site. This is fantastically wonderful!!! It is too much - it is so awesome! Can't find anymore expletives to describe this dessert. Hope you enjoy this as much as we have over the years. I did not include 3 hour refrigerator time in passive cook time. Also, the Triple Drizzle is optional. Don't let the long list of explanations bother you it is mostly repetitive. Give it a try - I am sure you will like it.”
