My mother passed the recipe for this luscious dessert on me...and my family has enjoyed it for years. These days, I often make this special treat for my granddaughter. It's a fun way to dress up Jell-O, and kids love it. -Audrey Huckell, Wabigoon, Ontario

"made this recently for work. Mine was a little sloppy and the next day, leftovers did not look so inviting. It had a good flavor, but I felt there was not enough filling. I did use vanilla oreos instead of graham crackers for the crust. I needed to use them up!!"

"I have been making this recipe and with other flavors also for years. I also chill the crust instead of baking it. I use yogurt in place of whipping cream and it comes out great it's a beautiful and yummy dessert. It's so easy to make, unfortunately doesn't stay around more than a day or so."

"I have made this several times, most of the time doubling it to make a 9 X 13 pan for our family get-togethers. easy to make. I did add a little sugar & increased 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs. I chilled crust in fridge instead of baking crust. Very tasty. One of my guests said she could eat the whole pan by herself & wanted some to take home for "breakfast.""
