It is wonderful. Serve it first, because you will have finished your meal. Have you heard " Eat dessert first:Life is short. moonbeam36

I made this for my family and it was a huge hit. Everyone loved it and a couple of them even wanted seconds. It is a very nice alternative to baking something when it is hot outside. I followed the recipe exactly and it was very easy to put together. I will definitely be making this again.

I made this for my office potluck for pre-labor day and it was devoured in no time! It is very easy to make also!

Great recipe and is very similar to the Ice Box Cake recipe that we have used for years at Christmas with chocolate wafers instead of graham crackers! So happy to have found this one to use for the summer months.
