This took some time to prepare due to the number of steps but it was well worth the effort. I made this quite some time ago and have been craving it ever since but couldn't find the recipe again. I'm thrilled that I finally remembered to search for it online and I'm glad searching by the ingredients is so easy since I couldn't remember the name. I can't wait to make it again!
