"These were good treats. Very chocolaty though.....and it was hard to cut into to eat. I didn't have a problem with coating them. I did not dip them, I spooned the chocolate on top. And you have to let the chocolate cool a little bit before putting it on the ice cream scoops."

"I always had a hard time using semisweet chocolate chips for coating things so I only use Almond Bark. It is very inexpensive and comes in vanilla or chocolate flavors. I works great in place of choc-chips for coating anything. Overall this is a good idea so I used vanilla waffers and strawberry ice cream for a bday treat. Delicious!"

"When I dipped the ice cream in the chocolate it immediately started to melt and the chocolate absolutely refused to stick to the ice cream. I had to pour it on top and it still would not stick all over. A bit of a disaster!"

"Mine didn't turn out as pretty but with a little practice they will get better. I will make this again for other holidays as well."
