So my awful sweet tooth has struck again! UGH! Well my dread is your gain; in a delightfully easy and tasty recipe.
Please excuse the poor quality of the photo, my camera was dead so I took in on Allen’s iphone. Also I used a rather large trifle bowl. I MUST invest in a smaller one, maybe if I host another Pampered Chef party this month I can afford another one. Lol.
