This is one of my favorite desserts to make for guests.
It takes no more than five minutes to prepare, is rich in body and flavor, and makes for some surprised looks when you tell your guests the "secret" ingredient (which, believe it or not, is impossible to taste)!
I like to serve this as a dessert dip for fresh strawberries, frozen sliced bananas, and whole wheat graham crackers.
