The first time I had this delectable dessert was on a cruise ship. Let’s just say it was love at first taste. I knew I could…no…had to duplicate the recipe as soon as we returned from our vacation.

This is one of my favorites and I’m happy to share my recipe with all my Sweeties! I promise it’s not a challenging recipe…there is one step where it would be nice if you had an extra set of hands…but after that, it’s smooth sailing…in a pool of chocolate sauce! YUM!
