Reviews for Chocolate-Coffee Bean Ice Cream Cake
"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 :)"
"Walgreens has chocolate covered coffee beans. This recipe is great."

"One place to get chocolate covered coffee beans is Nuts.com - they carry all kinds of unusual items that often aren't available in your local stores. I ordered some for another recipe and have been looking for another recipe to use them in so I'm looking forward to making this recipe."
