Recipe by FLUFFSTER
This is a beautiful molded torte, great for parties, poolside or orther. It makes a beautiful centerpiece, for any season! I get more requests for this, so I make up a few little recipe cards and place them under the plate that the dip is in! At least I know where they are and I don't have to leave the room! The flavors are delish, and I'm sure you'll agree with me! You can make this up to 1 day ahead to let the flavors set. I did not add in the chilling time or the overnight chilling time..
