Tagged for Potluck Tag game. This is a tasty dessert treat. I did halve the recipe and made it in an 8x8 baking dish and it worked well. It was a nice change of pace for us. Thanks Kelly!

Everyone enjoyed this dessert. It is economical because you make your own chocolate topping, rather than purchasing store bought chocolate frosting.
