VERY good - my changes were just a few - used splenda instead of sugar and sugar free shortbread cookies instead of graham crackers. I also melted the white chocolate and blended it in. Oh, I also took the cake out 10 minutes prior to being done, added the sour cream topping and put it back in to finish. (oh, and I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream, because that is all I had!) - OK more than a few changes! This was excellent though!
