This comes together really well, & even cut in half! (There's only 3 of us). However!!! You MUST give it plenty of time to "set up" matter how much your mouth begs to just dip in!!...

This recipe was really good! I halved the recipe because there's only 3 of us here. There is a lot of prep work and it's not easy to just throw together, but it was worth it in the end. Even my ...
