Reviews for Makeover Toffee Crunch Dessert
"So easy, so good. My book club gave rave reviews for this. I did not use the sugar-free ingredients suggested so we consumed some more calories. But it was great anyway!"
"Awesome desert for guilt free enjoyment. Have made this several times. Thanks for all the variations suggestions!"
"A hit with everyone. I use chocolate pudding."
"If you are looking to indulged without the guilt, this dessert is for you. Love it!"
"easy to make and soooo good!"
"this is soooo easy to make, and you can try different candy bars to change it up once in a while."
"Very good for what it is. I don't usually make desserts with all of these chemical-laden low fat/sugar substitutes, but this was worthwhile."
"Ended up making this for a Sunday Back to School BBQ. I had to end up using sugar-free butterscotch as my vanilla one was open when I opened the box :o( Not sure what the vanilla one tasted like but the butterscotch was a huge success. Will make it again with vanilla. I bought the package of mini butterfingers, I believe 6 or 8 in the pkg. It worked! Loved the recipe! Delicious!! Thanks"
"This is very good - especially for a light dessert. My family really liked it. I also tried making it with sliced strawberries in place of the butterfingers. Also very good!"
"My husband loves KitKat and my dad likes Reese's. On my second batch, I just left the candy off and let each person add his or her favorite. It was delicious!"
"Used the exact recipe and it was out of this world! Not a bite left!! You would never ever know it modified!!"
"I made this for a church potluck & got rave reviews about it. I also made it using SF chocolate pudding w/ SF oreos & SF lemon pudding w/ SF lemon filled cookies. My husband & daughter loved it. My husband & I are trying to think of other things to use for the topping. Planning on putting it in the church cookbook."
"This is absoutely delicious no one will know you are trying to cut calories. I didnt have any fanilla pudding so used white cholcolate it was tasty and easy to make"
"I brought this to my employees at work for a winter BBQ, it was a big hit & we added reduced fat oreos instead of crushed candy bars, we renamed it dirty snow cake, AWESOME!"
"This looks good and I hope to make it soon but I have a question. Does the phrase "frozen fat-free whipped topping" necessarily mean Cool Whip? I have friends who do not like Cool Whip so have been wondering if someone can suggest an alternative. Thanks."
"This recipe was so easy and good! It was much better after sitting a day in the refrig. Thanks for this recipe, I will make again and again!"
"OK, I made this three times now. I did the original recipe and it does get tastier if it sits a day or so. The second time I used cheescake pudding and strawberries, everyone loved it. Today I made it with the original recipe and crushed Oreos instead of the candy bars. Can't wait to try chocolate, lemon, and butterscotch puddings soon.I love all the different ways you can make this and thanks to everyone for their input of changing it. Yummy!"
"Doesn't even need the butterfinger, necessarily. Serve over banana slices and sprinkle on a little cocoa, yummm."
"I made this twice, once for my family and once to share with friends. I would make it again. I used toffee crunch candy to top it."
"Big hit! Had to share the receipe."
"I made this for my small group from church and it was a huge hit. Even the men in the group loved it."
"Made this for a lunch at work and since one of my co-workers has a peanut allergy, I used crushed low-fat Oreo cookies in place of the Butterfingers - it was a big hit with all!"
"Very good and easy to make. Couldn't find butter fingers so used crispy crunch."
"Butterfingers have always been my favorite candy bar so I loved this dessert at first taste but it took until the second serving before the rest of the family agreed with me. I used the sugar free cream cheese instant pudding instead of vanilla but I can see a lot of flavor possibilities for this dessert. Will definitely make again!"
"easy to make,my familiy loved it,and only four weight watcher points per serving , Thanks,Rosieo"
"For menlo, try french vanilla and add a tsp. vanilla or maybe some chocolate or caramel syrup drizzled inbetween would add extra flavor you're looking for. enjoy"
"It was very good and my husband (a diabetic) even was able to eat some of it. I will make this for the next church social..."
"This was so simple and quick to make. Three different families had a piece and it received raves of, "delicious! had to have it again, this is so good!" I will use this often!"
"My family loved it; light, healthy and good. Next time I make it, I will add another pudding (for additional flavor) and perhaps cut down on the cool whip."
"So easy and yet so delicious. It made a big hit with all who ate it."
"Made this with both lemon and chocolate puddings. Both turned out really well. Used 2 candy bars for the first one and only 1 on the second - which was enough. Definitely will make it again. DH from MN"
"This recipe was a cinch to make. Everyone loved it. I would definitey make it again."
"I madethis using SF instand pudding and fatfree whipped topping and 1/2 the amount of candy. My husband really liked it. As for those of you whom want the nutrition values. Everyone buys different products to make it so even if nurtrition values were given it wouldn't be what your dessert is, so why not figure it out for yourselves and get the correct values instead of someone elses."
"My husband and I love this dessert. I am always looking for "diet friendly" recipes and this one is right there at the top of my list. Next time I make it, and trust me there will be a next time, I think I'll try the SF or Weight Watchers heath bar candy. I love the versitility of the recipe over all!!!"
"It was very good and light, but just seemed to "need" something more for flavor. Thinking of maybe another flavor of pudding or something, anyone have any ideas?"
"I have made this three times already and shared the recipe with lots of friends! Absolutely wonderful!"
"I made this last week. Very, very good. I would definetly make it again."
"My husband and I LOVED this dessert, a little too much!"
"Tis was really good everone in my family liked it we will all make it again"
"This is a winner!"
"My husband and I both loved it. Lot of tast for something so light."
"I have made this several times and it is a big hit. It is very versatile and you can use different toppings and not feel bad about eating it."
"I honestly didn't expect this to taste as good as it did. The first time I made it, my husband and children fought over the entire dish! I hade to make it a second time just so I could taste it!"
"Fabulous and it took like 3 minutes to make. It was so easy. It was gone in about 5 minutes. I actually put it in a truffle bowl and the beauty of it really kicked in. Very nice."
"Since I made this, I have had request after request for it! Kids love it. Fantastic taste and light! Very easy to make and inexpensive."
"My daughter has made this recipe several times replacing the candy with strawberries. It is very light , fluffy and satisfies the sweet tooth. Very yummy. Looking forward to an occaision that I can make it."
"I have made this more times than I can count! It is absolutely delicious, light and easy to make. Equally great with Crispy Crunch, Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp.... Toss up for favourites between this and Pumpkin Trifle!!"
"This is my favorite desserts and I fit it in on my Weight Watchers program. It is even better after you let it sit for a couple of days."
"THIS IS TO DIE FOR. A FRIEND AT OUR CAMPGROUND INTRODUCED US TO THIS AND EVERYONE JUST LOVED IT. I DID MY OWN SPIN ON THE CONCEPT USING BANANA PUDDING, ANGELFOOD cake,1CAN STRAWBERRY pie FILLING OR FRESH SLICED STRAWBERRIES, 1 CAN CRUSHED PINEAPPLE(DRAINED USE AS LIQUID FOR PUDDING) DO IN LAYERS TOP WITH COOL WHIP AND DRIZZLE chocolate SYRUP OVER COOL WHIP.OPTIONAL SPRIKLE WITH COPPED NUTS AND SOME CHERRIES.IT'S GREAT."
"It is important to have the nutritional information, especially if you are following the Weight Watcher program and need to track points. One person said the calculated the recipe and it had 191 calories with 3.3 grams of fat and yet another said their rating came to 145 calories and 7.8 grams of fat...that is a big difference, especially in fat grams. Sounds like a great receipe though, so I will have to do the research and break it down to find out for sure. Thanks !"
"This is a great recipe i will make it again..Thannks"
"This is my favorite dessert to take anywhere!"
"Haven't tried this yet, but I agree I'd like the nutritional numbers for the recipes. Yes, I could probably figure them out by checking the store shelves, but I don't carry a calculator with me."
"Absolutely Delicious! I made it with sugar free candy topping."
"For those wondering, I calculated the calories and fat content per one-fifteenth serving.Calories- 191Fat- 3.3 gSat. Fat- 1.7 gCarb- 35.4 g"
"I loved it, too. We made it even lower in carbs by using the sugar-free Cool Whip, the sugar-free Russell Stover bars and our local grocery store (HEB) makes a sugar-free angel food cake. Delicious!!"
"T^his recipe can't be rated because it has NO nutritional information---half the calories??? how many and how many carbs and fat??Diana"
"I haven't made this yet but entered the ingredients in a calorie count analysis and it says for 15 servings there are 145 calories, total fat is 7.8g, cholesterol 0mg, sodium 149 mg. carbohydrates 17.9g and sugar is 7.0g.Sounds like a good dessert for diabetics too."
"I haven't made this yet, but judging by the reviews I think I will! I'm just amazed at how many people complain about not having nutritional content provided. It isn't that hard to add the contents up as your passing through the grocery store...come on people!!"
"wonderful and easy great for after the December seasons."
"I have made this recipe several times for "special" ocassions. It is always a hit, and no one has any idea that it is lower fat and healthy. It is one of my husbands favorites."
"I LOVE THIS!!!! I've made it with cheesecake flavored pudding, vanilla, and butterscotch...all have turned out AWESOME!!!"
"I would think it would be even more diabetic friendly if you used sugar free toffee crunch bars, available where ever Russell Stover chocolates are sold.."
"I need the nutrition please!"
"This recipe is so simple and easy to make, it turns out delicious. It's also very light on sugar and I'm okay with that, as my fourth son is a diabetic. It's definitely a keeper."
"I have made it this way for quite awhile. Nothing but rave reviews. I might try the cook and serve; but why change what isn't broken. I'll let you know."
"When I made it I changed the candy bar to a nestles crunch bar. We don't care for butterfingers it was good to."
"This recipe tastes better with Sugar Free Ready to Cook pudding, i think..I get the little beads that won't disappear either.2 thoughts on Healty:1) you can make it even healthier by using soy milk--i use the Silk low fact type and 2) I think a nutrition count should be REQUIRED if it's called healthy! I noticed somebody requested this almost a year ago!"
"It is very good but really chewy. I think if I make it again it would be with pound cake."
"The first tiime I made this recipe I didn't use the sugar-free instand vanilla pudding mix. I did use low-fat coolwhip. It turned out very well. The second time I made it, I did use the sugar-free vanilla pudding mix. I ended up throwing it out, trying it again and throwing it out again. i thought I might have let it sit too long the first time. I just went to store and bought regular pudding mix. The sugar-free kept giving me tiny little bumps that wouldn't dissolve. The smooth texture wasn't there."
"Bumblb:This is great. i also make it with the sugar free Cool Whip. my family and co workers just love it!"
"Wow! You can't tell that this is low cal! Everyone loved this. I loved how easy and fast it came together. I used my trifle bowl for this and it looked lovely too. Next time I am going to use Heath bars instead of Butterfingers (personal preference)."
"if u need a simple dessert this is it. it's even low in calorie."
"It would be very helpful if your Nutritional Content included the amount of sugar grams in each recipe posted for those of us counting sugar grams. Thanks, vkaestner"
