I found this dessert in my Kraft food and family magazine that I get in the mail. You can get this magazine for free. Just go to Kraft's website. I love their recipes. They are usually very easy to make and not expensive. What i love about this recipe is that you don't have to heat up the kitchen with the oven since it has been soooooo humid and hot lately.
