"I tried this recipe and it is so quick and easy to prepare! I DID make adjustments to the recipe by using a combination of crushed Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies/crushed store-bought chocolate chip cookies to equal 1-3/4 cups of cookie crumbs. I used 1 QUART total:

1 pt. Mississippi Mud ice cream and 1 pt. chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream which I'd
put over crumb mixture. I put the WHOLE crumb mixture in 12x8" baking pan. I then topped it with the ice cream and sprinkle with about 3/4 cup more cookie crumbs, then
wrapped in heavy-duty foil and placed in my freezer!
This dessert is definitely a keeper! I did keep the brown sugar and butter the same amount!
I did NOT cube butter! I just melted the butter and brown sugar together!
