    Very indulgent and really scrummy! Cooked it for a dinner party and everyone loved it! Some weaker beings couldn't finish theirs but I ate every last scrap of mine! lol Oh and I had to use Butterscotch Angel Delight as I couldn't get chocolate, very yummy still.  -  16 Dec 2011


    My parents made this when I was little and now I make this for my family. We also have made it with graham cracker crust and banana pudding for banana cream dessert and have made oreo dessert out of it by making an oreo crust with 1 lb of oreos, crushed and 1/4 c margarine, melted.Press into bottom of pan and let sit until cool before you add other layers. They make good no bake options. It also helps to cool all layers completely before adding next layer. We sometimes stick it in the freezer to speed it along.  -  01 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    my grandma has been making this for years and it is our family favorite. it is soooo good, you'll want to eat the whole pan. we've always topped it with chopped nuts, but i like the idea of chocolate shavings on top! i just made two pans yesterday and topped them with fall leaves sprinkles for the thanksgiving holiday.this is the best dessert in the whole world!!! oh and just a tip - don't use skim milk, it's too watery and will make your crust soggy - speaking from experience. use at least 2% - thats what i usually use.  -  27 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
