Mike and Charlie's Restaurant Babe's Delight

Mike and Charlie's Restaurant Babe's Delight created by diner524

Mike and Charlie's was a popular Austin, Texas restaurant in the late 1970s. This dessert recipe was posted in the Austin American-Statesman newspaper and I clipped it. The restaurant closed before I ever got to eat this dessert; but luckily I can make it myself. In the newspaper post, it was noted that this recipe could be called a Dieter's Delimma.
