Great recipe!! I dont use the pecans and instead of making the whip cream i just buy it already made! it makes it go so much faster but it tastes the same!!

All I can say is Amazing! I added an extra touch by drizzling caramel over the top and garnishing with a few fresh strawberries! This was a big hit at my family reunion!
