    I cut the recipe in 1/2 and served it with blueberries. Delicious. Thank you, Laurinda, for sharing this recipe.

    I made this yesterday for Easter and it was a big hit!The market was out of white chocolate squares and I substituted an 11 oz bag of white chocolate baking chips instead and that worked fine
