OK, I changed a few things, but don't believe the result was too far from the "real thing"! Used Vanilla Flavored White Baking Chips instead of white chocolate and graham cracker shell--and no orange. Didn't get to decorate it, 'cause it looked SO good my husband and I had to eat! Filling was really creamy. I'll add some heavy cream to the dark chocolate next time, so it won't harden so much.
