"I made these for my family one Sunday and the recipe is a keeper. The only thing I did different was I used cool whip instead of whipping cream, and also I used a container of frozen strawberries in their juice and added with the sliced strawberries for the top. They are delicious!! All my kids said not to loose this recipe."

"This was so easy to make, and was a big hit with all family members. Will make it again, but it gets soggy by the next day, so better make sure all is eaten the first day."

"My family loved this. I have since finding this recipe made many things with the filling. chocolate crepes were excellent with it. My grandchildren made large cupcakes ,choc and white and filled them with the filling mixture. Great a filling for stuffed french toast. Thank you for your recipe is one of our favorites."
