This was very easy to make & fairly quick. I loved the crust, however I thought the filling was lacking something. My husband thought it tasted to "cheesy" & I thought there the chocholate taste wasn't rich enough. It wasn't firm enough for my taste as well (perhaps I did not measure the milk carefully enough?) When I went to serve leftovers the next day it was a bit runny. With some tweaking it could be very good.
Tom makes this about once a year... it's AMAZING... yum! Well worth the time that goes into it!
