Recipe by MizzNezz

I've made this since a friend gave me the recipe at my bridal shower, MANY years ago!! This freezes very well. Take it out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator 2 hours before serving.)

This was so good! We really enjoyed our dessert this evening, thanks to you, Inez. I made this exactly as directed with the addition of sliced strawberries which made quite a beautiful presentation! Once again, I thank you!
