"This is so GOOD! My husband loves it!! Made just as printed except I didn't have enough of caramel ice cream topping so put that in the middle & used hot fudge ice cream topping(heated in microwave a few seconds so it would pour easier) on top! Being a chocolate lover, this made it even better."

"As all recipes I make, I always cut the sugar in half automatically and then taste. If needed, I add a tablespoon of sugar at a time if I need to adjust the taste. People need to remember that you can always adjust a recipe to your personal taste."

"@ Andrea7568. desserts are always full of calories and fat. Instead of complaining, just don't make a banana instead. This dessert is great for potlucks, company dinners and family get-togethers. Everyone I have served it to has had nothing but praise for it. Try it, you will like it."
