This is pretty tasty & so easy to make. I was hoping this was a copycat recipe for the Bambino Huey's served at Boccone's Italian restaurant in San Antonio. It's close, but not what I was looking for. I think I'll probably need to almost double the sugar to get closer to Boccone's version. Thanks for posting this.
