Since the 1960's, whenever I've asked my family what dessert I should fix, this is what they've requested. It has a light texture and also a tempting pale chocolate color and is not overly sweet. It's a delightful treat.

"this is good dessert. i used crushed golden oreos in place of vanilla wafers and added less margarine. i also used dreamwhip instead of whipping cream. Much healthier and tastier!"

"Could a Lite whipped topping be substituted for the whipped cream in this recipe for Chocolate Cream Dessert?"
