I thought it was just okay. Not sure if I'd make it again. 4 stars because my husband really liked it.
Very Good! Will definitely make again.
Great recipe. I was a little concerned about how the marshmellows would work, but they blended in well and they added a different kind of texture when you are enjoying the dessert.
P.S. This blueberry topping can also be doubled as a delicious pie filling during the plentiful blueberry season. During winter, frozen blueberries work really well whatever variation of this recipe you choose!
This excellent recipe gets rave reviews wherever it goes. I have also successfully layered it as a trifle, doubling the blueberry and marshmallow layers & doubling the butter in the crust (to assist with firming up the "crust" layer in the fridge). Whichever way it's made, this "stumble-upon" recipe has become an all-time friend & family favorite.
