Reviews for Butter Pecan Crunch
"I was disappointed with this recipe. It was okay but in no way outstanding. I made it for a dinner group and although everyone ate it and liked it okay, no rave reviews. I agree with the reviewer who says alot of work to just make over ice cream. The ice cream by itself tastes better, although the added Heath bar chips are great."
"The time it take to make over ice cream was time wasted."
"This is a great 'no brainier,' kids of all ages will love this for 'afters.'"
"We have enjoyed this dessert for years. One difference in our recipe is that we use 50-55 Ritz crackers instead of graham crackers. The saltiness of the crust goes well with the sweetness of the filling. I keep it in the refrigerator after it is completed."
