Oh my! These were virtually inhaled after a HUGE dinner at our yacht club. People were stuffed from dinner, and the diners couldn't resist them! I even accedentally omitted the whipping cream, over boiled the topping, and set the cooling bars on a 'still on' stove. Burned a nice ring on the bottom of them. Fantastic despite the shakey skills of this cook!
