Toffee Crunch Dessert Recipe

Publisher Photo
This light and fluffy after-dinner delight was Kim Belcher's signature dessert. The Kingston Mines, Illinois reader loved the recipe's candy topping and creamy layers, but hated all of the fat and calories it offered. That's why she lightened it up herself. See Makeover Toffee Crunch Dessert for the skinny on her revision.
