"This comes together in minutes, and it is wonderful. Have made it a couple of times now, and everyone loves it. Great in the summertime when you don't want to turn the oven on."

"I used non-frozen pound cake product and did not add chocolate in the middle. Cake was not high enough to allow for 4 layers, 3 works very nicely. I also used the Coco Real product in place of condensed milk and only added nuts to top of cake in case of food allergies. Very easy & delicious!"

"Well, I fell for this one. The cake sounded good so I clicked on the site only to find you have to be a subscriber.  I used to subsribe to TOH but let the subscription lapse because I could never find a recipe I liked.  Guess I'll have to quench the craving!"
