Reviews for Chocolate-Coffee Bean Ice Cream Cake
Sort By :
"Made this with Oreo cookie crumble crust instead and use cappuccino frozen yogurt ice cream (it is soft to begin with so it made mixing really easy). I missed the part about chocolate covered coffee beans, so I just got french vanilla coffee beans and put chocolate chips in the chopper when chopping up the coffee beans. It was a great hit! Thanks for the recipe :)"
