MY REVIEW

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 :)

I don't like coffee so I used mint choc. chip ice cream and made the whipped cream part as the recipe says. It was yummy. You could use any kind of ice cream that you like and add the whipped cream part the way you like also. There are so many variations.
