Hello and Welcome! I hope everyone is doing well. Desserts are big in our home, it is just an extension of dinner. More time for us to sit around and connect.
Today I have an easy, yet sinful dessert for you! If you do not want to make the entire recipe, cutting it in half is easy and no changes to the recipe are needed. My boys love this dessert and it is always a hit with guests! Enjoy!
