MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 18, 2014

"This was really yummy. My stepdaughter and I made this for dessert for Thanksgiving Day. There's always room for something sweet if it's ice cream--it slides right down. My family enjoyed this and of course it was really cute, too. It's really sweet--I might skip the sugar next time. I'm not sure it's necessary since the pumpkin pie filling and vanilla ice cream already add sugar to this dessert."

"I made this treat with my kindergarten class. I followed the recipe exactly because I was teaching my kids how to follow a recipe. It was so easy, my kids and I all loved it! Next time, I may use candies (i.e. M&M's or cinnamons) and create a Jack-O-Lantern faces."

"Wow, talk about a real treat, so easy to make and my grandkids loved it. I didn't have any pecans so I used crushed pretzels, and made a silly pumpkin face. I love the sweet and salty combo and the crunch with the smooth ice cream. Yummy."
