My daughter renamed this recipe 'The Best Dessert I've Ever Eaten' this summer when I prepared it for Memorial Day. I had made it before, but my husband had probably eaten all of it before she had a chance to get a taste! My husband doesn't like me to take this dessert to a large gathering because it means he won't have any leftovers! Got this recipe from a Bunco friend.

I made this for a group of 8 adults and 4 children ( ages 6-10 ). I had so hoped it would be enjoyed by all but 3 of the children politely declined dessert. My son-in-law who is normally not a dessert person loved it! The other adults ate it but left portions on their plates. I personally found it to be too rich and sweet. Read More

Crowd pleaser! I took a whole pan to a cookout and brought it home empty:) I loved it because it was so easy, they loved it because it was equally delicious. I took the suggestion of topping it with crushed butterfingers instead of pecans....mmmmmm! Read More

It went fast at the cookout I brought it to! The hot fudge sauce doesn't pour very easily, and so the final layer didn't spread very well. I covered it with foil and the entire top layer stuck to the foil! *Fortunately* I had decided to put the top layer of whipped topping on right before serving. So I scraped all the fudge and caramel off the foil, spread it in an unattractive layer on top, then covered it all with whipped cream, and then red-white-and-blue sprinkles for Memorial Day! Huge hit. Read More

Kids love this! It's less sinful with Skinny Cow ice cream bars fat free cool whip and low fat chocolate fudge sauce. Butterfinger or whatever decadent bar on top of course! Read More

Fantastic dessert! Found this and needed a dessert (hostessing a family reunion followed by Bunco at my house on consecutive weeks). For the reunion, used a whole jar of the hot fudge sauce on each layer after reading other comments and it worked well. Also took the idea of nuking the sauce for 30 seconds to make the spreading easier. Layered ice cream sandwiches, fudge sauce, Cool Whip and repeated the layers. For Bunco, a layer of ice cream sandwiches, caramel topping, Heath Bar bits, Cool Whip, ice cream sandwiches, fudge topping, Cool Whip. A hit, again. The best part was that Friendly ice cream novelties were on sale at a local store-buy 2, get 3 free. The following week, Smucker's toppings were a sale item-buy 2, get 1 free. Talk about a delicious, cost effective dessert-I scored! Read More

This dessert was so simple and so yummy! Instead of the whipped topping in between, I used a Mocha Almond Fudge ice cream :D Next time I'm going to try a Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. The possibilities are endless with this :) Read More

It can't be a sin because I got the recipe from watching the Dugger girls do it!! If "cake" has been in freezer overnight take it out about 20 minutes prior to serving so it isn't rock hard. We love dry roasted peanuts as a garnish but nuts are a "self-serve". Haven't served it to anyone that didn't at least think about having seconds!! Excellent dessert for any occasion. Read More

Klondike bars instead of ice cream sandwiches takes this over the top. Cookies and cream was ridiculous but pick your favorite. Make sure there is something salty and crunchy in between the layers and it will be requested constantly. Read More

Great and easy recipe! I modified it just a little. Instead of all vanilla ice cream sandwiches I used mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches. And on the top I added mini York peppermint patties. It was fabulous! I will be using this one again. Read More
