"I gave this 4/5 stars because the crust was to die for - really fantastic! - but for some reason the filling didn't taste sweet enough and the cream cheese was overpowering, even with chocolate drizzled on top. However, it could very well be the type of white chocolate chips I used."

"I'd like to see the nutritionals on this. I think it could be made patriotic with red and blue sauces for the stripes vs. the choc sauce!"
