"Finding the called for flavor of cookie mix was not easy, but when I finally stumbled on it I made sure to buy some and try this dessert. Not too bad! The cream is absorbed into the cookies to make a GREAT consistency, and the chocolate-covered peanuts make a very nice touch. I found the taste to be a little bland, however, and surprisingly lacking in chocolate flavor. If you prefer to taste 90% peanut butter and 10% chocolate, you'd probably enjoy this, but I tend to prefer it either more equal or with a higher chocolate to peanut butter ratio. Not sure if I'll make it again...."

"What a yummy dessert! I used frozen raspberries and the extra light syrup that came in the jar with the mango for its "juice," and it turned out wonderfully. I think the only thing I may do differently next time is omit the slivered almonds; I'm not too crazy about their texture, and the extract adds plenty of flavor on its own. Totally recommend a generous dollop of Cool Whip on top! Mmmm!!"

"Just made this dessert today, and it's not bad! It came out very nice looking, and the texture and consistency are great. However, the sugar cookie crust tends to compete with the toppings rather than complement them because it's so sweet. I think it would be better to use a more neutral crust."
