      Seriously delicious dish! I didn't have time to let it sit overnight before the party I had made it for started, but it was wonderful after just a few hours in the fridge. I had to explain to everyone it wasn't a dessert at first but after that it vanished. Will definitely make again!

      I made this for a party and at first everybody was a little reluctant to try it but before the night was over I had to sneak a piece of it into my fridge so I knew I would have some for the next day. Great and easy recipe Thanks for posting.
