“Heavenly” is a good description for this luscious dessert, conveniently made a day ahead. When I don’t have a candy bar on hand, I melt ¾ cup of chocolate chips to use in the frosting. Whipped cream can be used in place of the whipped topping.—Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah
These cookies have been a Christmas tradition in my family since I was a little girl. The big bears are so soft and chewy that we can hardly wait until they come out of the oven!—Elizabeth Manzanares, Gloucester, Virginia
Whether you like your holiday desserts fa-la-la festive or ooh-la-la fancy, this one's for you! The creamy frozen concoction is so stunning, it's reserved strictly for Christmas and birthdays at our house. Sometimes we substitute raspberry sorbet and dark chocolate ice cream.
