Next comes a layer of hot fudge sauce and a final layer of freshly whipped cream; garnished with chopped Andes Chocolate candies.

It’s always fun to serve delicious desserts on pretty dessert plates, so I borrowed pretty vintage dessert plates from my mother. I think the green color in the glass plates goes splendid with the colors of this dessert!
