I love raspberries! I plan on using the crust from my frozen strawberry desset. It is like a sugar cookie dough that gets baked then broken up. It adds just the right crunch and flavor.

Very yummy dessert! Extremely fast and easy to make, I bought a pre-made pie crust and it worked great. I agree that 4 cups of whipped topping is probably too much. Not too sweet, a little tart but very delicious!

Great dessert! Nice that it wasn't too sweet. I wasn't able to find the concentrate listed so I used raspberry concentrate without grape. I will definitely make this again!

I couldn't find chocolate wafers so I used vanilla flavored ones. Worked out great! What a yummy dessert!

I used a prepackaged chocolate cookie crust, which cut down on the prep time. I too found using 4 c whipped topping was too much. I would cut it down to 2 c next time also. It was a light, refreshing dessert! I would make it again!

This was a nice dessert but needs more oomph. Next time I'd fold some frozen fruit in to give more flavour. Also, you need to thaw the whipped topping before you can fold it in ... this wasn't stated in the original recipe. Next time I'm making it with OJ concentrate and mandarin orange segments mixed in.

I used 4 cups of the whipped topping and it was way too much to fit into the 9 inch springform pan, so next time I would only use 2 cups of whipped topping.

This was a nice, light dessert. I served it for a bridal shower. It was a hit with the guest. I would definitely make this dessert again! You could also double the recipe and place it in a 9 x 13" pan - depending on the occasion you are serving it for. A good one!
