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."
"I have made this for years but I always skip the salt, tastes funny to me when it is added. I've used several different flavors of ice cream and even changed up the cookie layer to crispy chocolate chip. Great make ahead dessert - always a big, big hit."
