Your guests will be amazed and delighted when they taste this elegant dessert. Very simple to make too! Also very versatile because you can adapt it to any occasion by virtue of added ingredients -- chopped toasted almonds or pistachios, shaved chocolate, chocolate curls, toasted coconut or maraschino cherries on top. For Christmas add chopped green and red glaceed cherries between layers and on top.

I made this using oreo cookies some chopped up kitkat and heath bars. A few people found it too sweet. I guess the cream between the oreos should br removed then. Not bad i would say. Read More

it wasnt bad but it could have been better it needed a crust and maybe a layer of cream cheese whip and you could omit wafers because they just get soggy Read More

Even though you can't beat a simple pudding/cookie dessert this one was rather disappointing. First of all there is no way that there is enough ingredients to fill a 9 X 13 dish. I used 30 cookies instead of 10 and could only fill a 8 X 8 dish. Read More
