Originally the name was Robert Redford, but I'm only in my mid twenties. The name won't be important after you try this dessert!

I have been making this for years. Although, in our family we always called this Fat Man's Misery. It is easy to make and I guarantee that there will never be any leftovers.

I have this same recipe. I make it for special occasions, as it is very rich. The original name I have it by is Robert Redford. Everyone looks at me strange when I tell them that. I was told that it was called a Robert Redford because it is yummy, just like he is, but I am too young for that too. Brad Pitt. Yummy.
