This was a hit! My boyfriend, who can be quite particular about his food, raved about it. Kids like it too!

Great recipe and a fun dessert! I made a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner tonight for fun of chicken breast with homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing and this for dessert. It was a great way to get ready for Thanksgiving!
