Was nervous about this recipe being too sweet, but it was the perfect thing to bring to a thanksgiving affair! It's diabetic friendly which is even better!! I'll definitely make this again!

This was so pretty I just couldn't resist. However, the bottom layer didn't set at all, the crumbs didn't stick to each other and got everywhere. I'm not sure what would fix it, and I didn't want to add a ton more of butter. The taste was good though, and it's very easy to make.

This frozen torte was a big hit at our family's Memorial Day cookout! It was a breeze to prepare. The minty flavor was very refreshing on a steamy, hot day making this just the right dessert! My husband has already requested that I make this again for his birthday next month, so it's a keeper recipe for sure!
