As long as you can accept a certain artificial taste because of all the "processed food" ingredients this is very good for a quick impromptu dessert. I only had three people for dinner so I altered this a bit to make in individual parfait glasses. I brushed leftover turtle brownies with Starbuck's liqueur then chopped them in 1/2 inch pieces. I subbed a package of Dream Whip for the frozen topping because you don't have to wait for it to thaw and used one package of chocolate mousse mix. I layered this as directed in the recipe with the crushed toffee bars and topped it off with just a little more of the crushed toffee bars rather than the chocolate bar. Very pretty little parfaits and came together in minutes. Read More

According to my guests this was a great ending to our dinner party. Lots of kids so I used decaf coffee instead of the liquor. I added some peanut butter chips to the layers too. Everyone asked to take some of the leftovers home Sue! Read More

This recipe tasted good but the directions regarding how much chocolate mousse to use aren't really clear. I ended up using two packages of chocolate mousse mix and it didn't seem like enough. Read More
