MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2014

"These bars were very good, but I took them out according to the recipe and after letting them cool, they weren't set up really well, very gooey! They are also very, very sweet so only a small piece is needed."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 28, 2010

"I have made this recipe which I have had for many many years dozens of times. Got it from a restaurant near where I lived. It is the best chocolate pie you will ever eat. It stays in the freezer until you are ready to eat it. Cuts nicely!"
