I know this looks like a recipe you would never need to make-why go through the trouble when you can just buy it in a tub at your local grocer? Well this recipe has an absolutely great taste, and is so easy to make! This will probably take you a lot faster, than running to your grocery. I just used this recipe for making cake balls, which I will post up soon, and it was great! This recipe does yield quite a bit, but you can double or triple it and save the rest for later-it stores beautifully in the fridge! Hope you enjoy!
