My husband dreamed this recipe up one night using skim milk and a few lighter convenience items. The result was this fluffy rich-tasting dessert that the kids and I request time and again.—Sue Yaeger, Boone, Iowa

"This was divine and really easy to make. I didn't fold the whipped topping into the chocolate mixture. It was turning out too lumpy, so I just beat it with the mixer."

"This was really delicious!! I highly recommend it. The only things I changed ~ I didn't use sugar free pudding and I used fat free sour cream and fat free cool whip."
