Reviews for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dessert
"My coworkers love this dessert. They ask for it again and again!"
"<p>Way too sweet. I used homemade cookie dough hoping it would come out of the pan easier...didn't help. Almost impossible to serve. Looked really good.</p>"
"Love this dessert but only use it as base!...the cookie dough was hard to cut and eat so i just use crumbled up choc chip cookies - awesome way to use up dry or stale cookies and much easier to serve! I also add a lot more ice cream b/c i too thought that the texture was off!"
"This is in regards to kerrylehman's comment below.It is correct to only use 1/2 cup of milk with the pudding. You need the mixture to be thick and not like regular pudding.As for the package of pudding, if you have a Royal brand that is 1.7 oz, it is a sugar-free product, which is why the weight is less. You could try using it, but you still only want to use 1 box.The weights of regular and sugar-free products are very different. We've also found that Jell-o and Royal brands differ in weight, but still yield 4- 1/2 servings, so can be used interchangeably.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"I also tried the 1/2 cup milk and thought something was wrong. I increased it to 11/2 cups milk like the pie recipe on my jello pudding box and it worked for me."
