Found on Epicurious, this was a wonderful and simple Cinco de Mayo dessert (though I am positive it would be smashing any time!). Fantastic on top of ice cream! Cook time is sitting time.

Excellent on Vanilla Bean ice cream. For fullest flavor, it needs the sitting time so plan accordingly. It was still very good two days later as I made it for just the two of us so we had leftovers. I plan on trying a couple of salted pretzel twists or sticks next time as they seem an appropriate garnish.
