Light as a feather, this cool, satisfying dessert is delicious and impressive to serve. It's an excellent dessert to take to a potluck because it can be made ahead and stored in the freezer. —Launa Shoemaker, Landrum, South Carolina

"This recipe was so easy to make and it was delicious! I added 1/2 to 3/4 heath bar bits and then topped it with pecans and more toffee bits."

"I added extra coffee because I love the flavor of coffee, and I added vanilla ice cream because I had some I wanted out of my freezer and thought it would make it creamier. It turned out delicious, except I put it in a springform pan and put way too much topping on it. When it was out of the freezer and got cut it melted like a blob of ice cream! I think next time I will make a bigger pan and have the topping not be so high."
