Absolutely delicious!!! I've always wanted to make this dessert, but the high fat content put me off. Although this version is lower in fat, it has a very nice and creamy texture and is very easy to prepare. I used plain yogurt and added 1/2 tsp. almond extract. There was enough mixture to fill eight small(3 1/2") heart shaped molds. This is a beautiful Valentine's Day (or anytime) dessert. I wish I could give it a 10 star rating! Thanks for sharing, Philocrates.
