    I agree that this is good. The gelatin gave it a texture that was different, that is why I rated it a four.

    This is excellent. The only negative is, that I can tell, is the gelatin. It gives it kind of a smooth texture that just isn't what I'm used. I'd make it again though. Super easy to prepare.

    This is a wonderful, light dessert. I made it for the adults and the kids devoured it instead of brownies!
