"I would do a graham cracker crust in my opinion. I didn't like the vanilla wafers but the blueberry topping was just awesome! Liked the marshmellows."

"I've been making this since its publication in 2007, and it's one of my favorites. I love blueberries, so I'm always glad to find a good recipe that features them. I am not a marshmallow fan, so I was skeptical at first, but in this recipe, I love them."
