"This is a yummy, decadent dessert. Is great to serve to company after a wonderful meal."
"Everyone practically licked their bowls after this dessert. I did not have a 9x9 so I used an 8x11. I have never used this technique before and I was curious about how it would come out. i topped it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. DELICIOUS!"
"One word comes to mind..Delicious!!! Everyone loved it..will definitely be making this again!!"
"It tasted great! As mentioned in a previous comment, just watch how full you fill the pan. The cake rises more than you would expect and the fudge can overflow onto the bottom of the oven. Still tasted amazing though, the whole family loved it!"
"Yummy! Not at all what I expected......thought the liquid fudge would be on top, but it was underneath and somehow the cake moved to the top! It is sooooooo good with vanilla ice cream. Will definitely make this again!"
