    Amazing Dessert!And the kids (and grown ups) loved it Thanks!

    I was very pleased with the presentation and how nice it looks when served. I also had to double the cream cheese layer, which i will definitely add sugar to next time - not sweet enough! I made the crust out of chocolate animal crackers.

    I made this once years ago and want to make it again, now that my kids are grown, they still remember it, it was delicious. question, when using oreos (halloween ones of course) do I crush them creme and all or use just the chocolate cookie and remove the creme?
