    Very good flavor, I make it almost every week. Its easy, its fast, and its fun!!!
    This is my favorite dessert to make every year during the holidays! My boyfriend is a very huge fan of it! He couldn't wait for Christmas to roll around for one! My family also really enjoys this Hershey torte! It has become a tradition for me to bake multiple of these to hand out to separate households! I give this dessert a 5 Stars on everything, for it is very fun to put together and very enjoyable to give to loved ones! Great recipe and turns out perfectly every time!
    My niece is getting married next summer. I am in charge of most of the desserts for the shower. Definately this one will be served. My niece loves this recipe.
    OMG - This is DELICIOUS!!! Made it for my mom's birthday dinner and got rave reviews from everybody. Don't be alarmed if it's hard to cut. The bottom layer was almost sticky on the knife - probably should have put the blade in hot water between slices. The "stickiness" was from the super moistness of that layer. Will definitely be making this again! Decadent & Delicious. *The only thing I did differently was that I used my 9" springform pan. Seemed easier than messing around with the foil.
