this is tasty, but way too hard to eat thanks to the cold caramel. in the future, i will melt the caramels with 1/4c whipping cream instead of 3T milk. other than being so chewy that i got a jaw workout, it was yummy!
I made this using my Graham-cracker Crust (microwave) and no sugar pudding and Cool Whip. It is a very rich and yummy dessert.
