"I had this at friend's house and had to have the recipe! He didn't know where he got it but he knows the date - it was on the receipt he wrote the recipe on. Great when you want just one serving of dessert."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I mix up single servings and store in an airtight container for a quick snack. You can add wheat germ or flax seed to make it healthier (and you feel better about it). Also, try it with carob powder if you want.
