This is an Italian custard-like desert. It's very rich but also very tasty. At my favorite Italian restaurant (now closed), they served it chilled in a hurricane shaped daiquiri glass, topped with a couple fresh blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and a strawberry. Very elegant desert to finish a romantic meal with the one you love. I haven't fixed this myself yet, but it sounds very simple, and you can make it a day ahead of time! I found this recipe at Please note, cooking time is a rough guess since I haven't made this yet, and the site I found this did not list a cook or prep time. Chill time is not included as it is optional.
