Tried this for Thanksgiving and sorry to say it was not good! The consensus was the same with all of the guests. No one cared for it and I would not make it again.Ill stick to classic recipe!

awesome recipe - I've made this multiple times now and every time everyone raves about it. Not sure about the review who said they only tasted raw pumpkin puree as I've never had that problem. I highly recommend trying it out, it's definitely worth it!
Also I've always used almond extract in place of the almond liqueur, though in a lesser amount as almond extract is a bit strong!
So glad I was not discouraged by SaratogaKim to make this recipe. It is pretty, fresh, cool...and so easy to make and serve in the same day. I did not have enough pound cake for three layers, so dug thru pantry and finished 3rd layer with graham crackers! I also used almond extract instead of liquor and had all other ingredients in frig just waiting for a new recipe for something pumpkin...and chocolate ! I finished the topping with the cinnamon and cocoa and...toasted sliced almonds. Fab!
Love it! Making it again for Thanksgiving! I made it for a dinner party and it turned out really good. I read the review below and reduced the pumpkin by half and increased the chocolate to 4oz. Also used organic canned pumpkin...don't know if it made a difference but I was happy with how it turned out.
Don't do it! I made it for a "pumpkin throw down" contest and come in last place. All you could taste was the raw pumpkin puree. Even made the special ingredient purchases. Very sad. Thought I had a winner. Stick to the usual pumpkin treats.
