Recipe by JustJanS
A really easy to assemble dessert that is the prettiest shade of pink. The recipe asks for a spring-form pan, but I made this in a lovely footed glass bowl which looked great. We don't much like white chocolate so would use dark next time.

This is soooo good! I used my glass footed trifle bowl for this and it looked so pretty. I liked that it wasnt too sweet. This was the favoured dish by all. (My husband had 4 helpings!!) This was one of my favourite recipes for 2008. Thanks Jan!
