Okay, I’ve got to confess…I can only eat a very small serving of this dessert in one sitting. Don’t get me wrong, this is a wonderful dessert – and if you love chocolate, nuts and marshmallows, then this is definitely one you’ve got to try. However, I feel it’s my duty to warn you that this dessert is super sweet and very ooey gooey. Be sure you have a tall glass of milk nearby while indulging in this rich treat. 🙂
