I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. I used all diet products except for the cookies (and by not buying the premimum brands they wern't truly horrible in fat and sugar). I juse Jello fat/sugar free pudding, the lightest Cool Whip, no sugar added maple flavored syrup, skim milk. Still, it's not something I would have everyday but for a special dinner or holiday? You Bet! It's rich tasting and so very decadent feeling that you *almost* feel guilty. Thanks KelBel for a real keeper!
