    I had to give this one star because it was not a parent unless you read the first paragraph that this is a recipe cut in half. It still shouldn't be calling for a 9 by 5 dish then. And it doesn't show that you have to cool in between the layers which you absolutely do. Ruined my whole dish wasting money.

    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.

    Another name for this is "taste of heaven". It is just right on a hot day with good flavors.

    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.
