Someone requested this recipe (which I remembered from my childhood in Melbourne) and as I was writing it down I also remembered how easy it was to make and how delicious. So I have posted it here for everyone to enjoy.
Every Wednesday The Montreal Gazette posts recipes according to the theme of the week or recipe requests that readers ask for. This is a recipe request, and it is from American chocolate company, Ghiradelli. I have made and ate this recipe and is decidedly very good.
Plan ahead this needs to chill for a minimum of 2 hours before serving, purchase the ready-made glaze for this, if you like a lot of cream topping then use a 12-ounce container of Cool Whip topping, 16 servings is only estimated I can eat this whole cake myself lol! --- see note on bottom for a thinner twinkie crust -- you will *LOVE* this! :)
Although cool whip can never take the place of whipping cream it can cut down the calories, make a very quick dessert and taste lovely as well. I served this in small dessert dishes with a very small piece of chocolate to garnish. Although I used milk chocolate, it could also be made with dark. The idea for this recipe came from Kraft.
This has been one of my favorites for years. I made it for my inlaws when my husband and I were dating. It was such a hit, I knew I was "in" when his grandmother asked me if she could share some with her friends at Bingo.
A very easy flavoured cream which goes well on top of any fresh or canned fruit. I like it especially with a mixture of sliced bananas and fresh strawberries. :)
I have also used this to top a nice hot cup of my favourite coffee.
An awesome filling from a TOH recipe for "Cream Cake Dessert" by Peggy Stott. The cake wasn't anything special, but the cream is incredible! She suggests filling a yellow cake with it for a potluck, instead of icing it. Cooking time includes cooling.
