  1. This makes a very thin drizzle, try using less milk and gradually adding more as needed for the thickness you want. You can see the drips on the plate which means a thing mixture.

    • That’s exactly right, Angelina! Yes, it is thinner…

      It gives us a great deal more control on the amount of extra calories we are adding on top of a treat.
