Reviews for Ice Cream Crunch
"I've been making this dessert for over 40 years using pecans instread of mixed nuts. It wouldn't be summer if I didn't make it at least once. It really is easy. I stick the pan with the crisp mixture in the freezer for a few minutes to harden it before adding the ice cream. Don't skip greasing the pan. You'll regret it. I discovered when I made it today that I had accidently picked up Butter Pecan instead of Vanilla ice cream. Didn't matter."
