Lovely recipe enjoyed by everyone at a dinner party not just my coeliac husband. This will be a family favourite I'm sure & am planning on doing it again for another dinner party next week. It's really fresh tasting and not at all overpowering like some can be. I sprinkled gluten free chocolate nips over the top

Very tasty and easy to make. I grated some plain chocolate over mine and that worked really well too.

I made this for Mother day and it was very easy to do and delicious. I used gluten free digestives but you can easily use normal if you don't need to have gluten free. I don't even think it needs the extra whipped cream on top as the filling is really yummy on it's own

Would this freeze ok? I've a party to cook for and freezing in advance would help

Why is the sweetened condensed milk as grams instead of mil.
