I was asked to make dessert for our 4th of July party. Instead of the "old reliable" 3 or 4 that I always make, I decided to take a chance and make something different. Everyone at the party raved about this dessert and agreed that it definitely rated 5+ stars. (The crust is awesome) I used a bag of toffee bits, so instead of only putting 1/2 cup on top, I used the rest of the package. This brought out more of the "toffee" flavor. The next time I make it, I am going to use 3 boxes of the pudding, put half on the crust, and adjust the Cool Whip accordingly for the remaining half. The crust can definitely handle more filling on top. I am also going to try this recipe with white chocolate pudding.
