    everyone loved it! will definitely be doing this again. I used Elmlea double cream to reduce the calories and it worked just as well.  -  15 Dec 2012


    One of the most simple Recipes i have ever seen with such an amazing outcome, I made these the night before making a meal for friends and saved so much effort and time rather than making a dessert on the same day and everyone loved it, thanks alot!  -  21 May 2012
