Mom has made this sweet treat for years. Since she knows how much my sister and I like it, she's still happy to serve this torte when we're home for a meal. The chocolate-covered graham cracker crust and fluffy filling are extra-special.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

"I love chocolate covered grahams, so this recipe caught my eye right away. It is so delicious! I used strawberry pie filling instead of cherry, only because our daughter doesn't care for cherry! It's a winner no matter what!"

"Very good except I don't use dream whip as it contains hydrogenated oils so I made my own whipped topping."

"Delicious! Take out of refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving so that crust can soften. Otherwise it can stick in the pan."

"You can substitute other pie fillings too and use just plain graham crackers. This is a very nice dessert! Try blueberry or raspberry!"
