    SReiff's Note:

    My sister-in-law makes this for my in-laws' Christmas meal and it is delicious. I added this to my extended family's holiday table several years ago and now I would be in trouble if I didn't make it and bring it to our holiday feast! In the past three years, it has become a new tradition for my family (which doesn't happen often!). My mother even requests this for the Thanksgiving meal. If you're searching for something deliciously different for your holiday meals, you will not be disappointed with this. It is a trifle-like dessert with layers of cubed, moist date/nut cake, cool whip, and candy-like caramel or toffee sauce. AMAZING. This recipe makes one dessert bowl. Doubling this will make it fit nicely into a 9x13" pan and into two dessert bowls.
