too good

A while back I found a recipe on Pinterest that looked A-mazing:
in under 5 minutes

What double what, what??
It was love at first click and I added it to our to-try list immediately.

Well we tried it:

And it was. . .okay.
A bit sub par.
Not our favorite.

I had such high hopes!  A quick sugar fix after a 5-minute swirl in the microwave??  What could be better?  Alas, it was indeed too good to be true.

Such has been the way with most of my Pinterest recipe finds...
I guess I need to be more aware of the comments people post instead of looking through all the pretty pictures.

Lesson learned (again).
