Reviews for Easy Ice Cream Sundae Dessert
"Very good and easy to make. Can change it up easily with different ice cream's."
"This recipe is a hit every time I make it! It's a wonderful desert to have when you have friends over for a cookout."
"Since I cut it out of the magazine years ago, I have made it dozens of times. Everyone loves it. It is a good idea to pre-cut this into serving portions while it is not quite solid since it is murder to cut otherwise. If you forget, let it sit out a while before serving. We like it best with ice creams like cookies n cream and moose tracks - vanilla base with something nice in it."
"Fairly easy recipe. Loved by my family!"
"Delicious! Rich dessert."
"This has been a family favorite for years. My kids usually request this for their Birthdays instead of cake."
"My sister-in-law made this for our family once & we've made it many, many times since. So good & easy to make. The chocolate layer is so good."
