"Delicious and so easy, and it really dresses up the simplest ingredients to make memorable desserts! Try it layered with vanilla pudding and crumbled Biscoff cookies. Yum!"

"I have made this recipe several times and everytime I do everyone raves about how good it is, especially over blueberry pound cake or just plain pound cake"

"Very easy and so good! I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar & serve this over Belgian waffles with a little almond butter. Have enough left over to use over ice cream later"
