Notes: 

* This is Danielle Dimovski (Diva Q)'s recipe, she made in on Canada AM in August of 2010.
* The original recipe is here http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews//20100806/danielle-dimovski-100806/
* I have not made the sauce, though I will next time. I used some "Dulce de Leche" jarred stuff from President's Choice.
* I also use President's Choice puff pasty, they sell it frozen, and pre-rolled!
* The yield I had from this recipe was enough to fill two of the PC pastries (one box).
