This easy recipe can be prepared entirely with the use of a few mixing bowls, spatula and whisk with pantry ingredients. The results are a rich and decadent dessert for any occasion.

Notes: Make sure to use the regular cream cheese as opposed to whipped, which will not give you the same results. You could create a swirl at this stage with the cream cheese topping.

Instructions
