Recipe Notes
  1. This stores best in the refrigerator. Cool completely and cover well. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To get neater pieces it must be cold.
  2. Serve warm, room temperature, or cold. Top with freshly whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or drizzle with salted caramel sauce, if desired.
