This was very enjoyable. I have a recipe similar in my recipes, but it doesnt use only water... it is cream-based. This was a nice change from that, but I will admit that I prefer the cream-based version. This is very very sweet, and rich :-) I will definitely make this again as my husband loves these types of desserts!
