MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 22, 2014

I got a lot of compliments on this dessert - loved the brownie base - a nice alternative to traditional graham cracker or shortbread crusts that I have made with other layered desserts. I did leave out the nuts, since I knew there were several in the group I was serving that didn't care for them. I have also made this using pistachio pudding. Wonderful recipe!

I made this dessert over the summer for our family Fourth of July gathering and several of my relatives are still calling and asking me to make it for them again!
