"Easy, fast, simple ingredients to gather. Put your canned milk in the refrigerator the day before you want to make this. If you beat whipping cream past the soft peak stage you've gone too far but still fold it into your chocolate mixture.

I used **three Tbsp. unsweetened baking powder AND one Tbsp. Crisco** (times 4) in place of 4 baking chocolate squares
Will make again."

"It was good except for the unsweetened chocolate. If I made this again I would use sweetened."
