A friend brought this to a potluck and everyone swooned over it. I made sure to get the recipe for my chocolate loving family. It's very rich so cut the pieces small.

Wonderful recipe, and just enough that you don't get tired of it. I used the suggestion of butterscotch pudding (cooked kind,) and it was delicious.

Chocolate is my absolute favorite, but I actually like this one better with butterscotch pudding.

I made this dessert for Thanksgiving. My husband does not really care for sweets. But, this dessert was so appealing to him, he ate most of it! I am making it again for our in-law Holiday meal and my empolyee holiday lunch. I am sure it will be the "hit" of both.

I've never tried this dessert with chocolate pudding, but my mom has always made it with pistaciao pudding. Can't wait to try chocolate!!
