This was really really really yummy! I wouldn't change a single thing about this recipe, except, I might add a little more sugar.

Otherwise, this was perfect. I made this as dessert after a "Thai food Party" on Friday, and I had some left over on Saturday, so I had it breakfast and lunch. It was super awesome. Super yummy, too. I might have already said that, though. ;D
