Ok, thought I would share a sinful recipe for the holidays...this is a favorite in our house...and everyone requests it!

I only make it at the holidays because it is so horribly delicious and addicting (and fattening!, but shhh, let's not say that one aloud!)

I am off to make some...and will revise this and post a photo, tonight!
