    Easy Recipe to follow and make. I thought I could cheat and not let it chill for as long as the directions said...WRONG!!!! The flavour wasn't as intense as when it had chilled the 8 hours!!!! Delicious  -  21 Jul 2008


    Delicious for parties!  -  21 Jul 2008


    The base turned out really hard and stuck to the dish so unfortunately it was more of a chocolate crumble for me. Practically needed a jackhammer to get it out. Not sure what I did wrong. It was still very tasty, very rich which I like. I would recommend vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream to go with it. I'll definitely try it again.  -  17 Feb 2016
