Personal Notes:
Not for those checking their cholesterol! Nick made this for me when we were dating to celebrate our 6 month anniversary. It has always been a favorite, but it is so filling and rich! It may appear to be spicy with the cayenne and Tabasco, but it is not, it simply gives it a little kick, but you could omit those ingredients if you wanted.
