  1. I made this for xmas eve dinner, turned out great. I omited the fudge, and added a package of melted dark chocolate to the filling.
  2. Sinful! And ohhh so good. This makes an elegant looking dessert but very easy to prepare. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing this, itsnevrenough. I can't wait to make it again.
  3. Very easy to make--was a big hit with my family as a dessert for Thanksgiving.
  4. I liked the layer of fudge sauce on the bottom crust. My filling never set up to the firm stage so it was a little messy cutting the slices. If you like a sweet cream cheese filling, then I recommend bumping up the sugar from 1/3rd cup to perhaps 1/2 cup.
  5. This was very good! There isn't even a sliver left over from our get-together last night. I accidentally made this in a chocolate graham cracker crust (I was making two pies and got confused on which one went in which crust) and it was quite yummy! Thank you for such a great recipe.
