"I made this recipe for an Easter potluck and although it was good, I had to use store bought chocolate sauce because the sauce made with the recipe directions did not thicken up even though I double checked the ingredients, so I didn't use it. What did I do wrong?? It tasted fine and was a big hit, but was messy when it thawed. And ice cream cartons are smaller now but that didn't seem to alter the recipe at all. I love mint ice cream so the flavor was great!"

"Our family really loves this frozen treat. I made it for a Birthday celebration and it was a hit. My girls still talk about it. My girls really enjoy looking through the Taste of Home cook books for fun. Whenever they come across this recipe they talk about the good memories, the fantastic taste and how they want it again."
