MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2014

"This came out great and super yummy! I didn't melt all the chocolate the first time and cut the ingredients in half. Then after I did the peppermint layer, used the rest of the halved ingredients for the top chocolate layer. We cut them into smaller, 1/2 squares. Definitely recommend, very easy to make."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2014

"This recipe is very good and tasty! I will definately make again. The only thing I found was that I had to make two batches of the chocolate. Not being an expert at chocolate but have had my share with it, chocolate that is left out is not easy to work with. I made the first batch using all of it for the bottom part and made a second one using all of it for the top part and was so much easier to work with."

"firefoxkitty, you must use condensed milk, not evaporated milk."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2013

"This only made syrup. My Christmas gift to my nephew and niece is still sitting in the freezer, not set up. The candy for Christmas dinner, likewise ruined. I even had 12 oz of evaporated milk not 14 and used 1 1/2 cups of the chips each, still syrup only. Disgusted!!"
