This dessert has all the ingredients of everyone’s favorite childhood treat. This sweet and creamy treat is so simple to make and you won’t need to bake it, it’s the perfect treat. Easily serve 8-12 kids with generous portions.
This brings me back to my childhood when we had a sleepover and my friend’s mother brought this delicious and sweet dessert. Today, I’m taking it to the next level and you can surprise your kid and their friends with this amazing dessert.
This recipe uses chocolate sauce to drizzle on top of the cake, but if you want to use something else, please do. I usually put the topping after I portion the cake because my son loves chocolate and my daughter loves cinnamon. The perfect dessert for everyone.
