For big chocolate taste, Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin treats her family to this thick ice cream topping. "It's a snap to make the fudgy sauce," she writes. "And we like it better than the store-bought kind!"
Pauline Murray relies on rhubarb and frozen raspberries for these yummy, crimson treats. "I replaced the fresh raspberries that were originally called for with the frozen variety so that I could decrease the sugar in the fruit mixture," explains the Cleveland, Ohio baker. "The squares are perfect any time of year."
I received this wonderful recipe many years ago from a friend. The creamy custard-style ice cream has a mild cherry flavor with a fun oat crunch. It takes some time to make, but it's worth the extra effort!
