I've been making this dessert for Christmas eve for years....... It's a huge success!! This is velvety smooth.... Being a diabetic, I use SPLENDA instead of the sugar. It keeps me from putting my insulin pump in overdrive. An occasional splurge doesn't hurt and it is so worth it. I highly recommend this recipe.
