"Very, very good. You WILL want seconds!"

"FANTASTIC! I love that I can make it ahead of time, too, and keep it in the freezer until I serve it. I don't always have instant coffee on-hand, so sometimes I brew REALLY strong coffee and use a bit of that. Even without much of the coffee flavor, this is fantastic!"

"I too used less instant coffee. Next time I may reduce amount a little further for just a "hint" of mocha flavor."

"I make this when Im sure I have company to share it with, because I cant be trusted with it alone, haha. It's a wonderful dessert, not too hard to make and is quite impressive. The flavors and texture is devine. Im making it again tonight for a get together."

"This dessert is amazing!

I used peanut butter oreos for the crust instead of regular ones, and it made a noticeable difference - it's even more delicious now! I also used about 2/3 the amount of coffee it calls for.
I will definitely make this again!"
