I use the mimi chips, verycute

Delicious!! I did modify a little. I added some (10 oz.) of crushed pineapple in it's own juice but drained and I also used an artificial sweetener rather than sugar. I also added an extra egg. It turned out beautifully, looked great and tasted great too. And it's EZ!!! Try it

Must try this one look good.


Awesome and it taste good

This does sound yummy but I think after going through the work why not have perfect topping also. Whip some whipping cream and add some powdered sugar to sweeten and about 1/2 tsp of alomd flavoring OR 1 tsp of vanilla. That will make it all worthwhile!!!

Absolutely! I use almond flavoring also in chocolate icings, & other chocolate recipes...wonderful
