  13. Boy it even looks better in the picture than it did on my plate!

    I hope other folks try tweaking the recipe with additions like cherries or peanut butter chips, white chocolate etc. I would love to try a lot of versions...but I found I enjoyed it way too much. Maybe I should adopt some teenage boys to consume experiments after I try just one slice!

  14. I just made this and it was soo good! I probably should have frozen it longer, cause it was a little runny, but very tasty. And easy!
