MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 20, 2011

So Good! It's surprisingly not over the top sweet like you think it would be...the inside is like a really light, fluffy chocolate cake! The sweetest part is definitely the cherry and I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust instead of wafers and turned out great! Goes great with coffee, huge hit, highly recommend!
