I created this recipe when I had a hankering for something sweet after a Sunday afternoon nap.  I understand that the title is a little long, but I wasn’t sure how else to describe it.  My husband is always my “guinea pig” taste tester.  This recipe received two thumbs up and is listed as a keeper.  I wanted to post this before Easter Sunday because it would be perfect to make ahead and have for breakfast, brunch or dessert.  Enjoy!
