Made this for dessert tonight & it was delicious but sooo rich!! Next time I'll use different biscuits than the gingernuts as the ginger flavour was a bit strong. You're a legend Julie, I'd love to attend a dinner party with you there!! Happy cooking.

I'm ditching Weight Watchers to try this one lol. Though instead of ginger biscuits I'll use Nice instead.
