Meet the Cook: Vary my recipe if you like. In place of peanuts, try using walnuts, pecans or cashews on occasion. Or substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips. For a luscious dessert-on-the-go, put a double dip into a cone. You can also serve this for fancy looks luxurious in a clear-glass sauce dish. -Sheila Berry, Carrying Place, Ontario

"I've been making this for years but I freeze it in a spring form pan with the bottom and sides lined with purchased lady fingers. It can then be sliced and served as a frozen pie. Take it out of the freezer 15 minutes before serving to make slicing easier."

"Just tried this recipe for the first time after wanting to try it for ages. It is delicious and I was especially impressed with how the marshmallows stayed nice and soft. It did take a little bit longer than 5 hours for the ice cream became firm, but it was worth the wait! I will be making this again and trying the variations suggested. I did use pecans rather than peanuts and toasted them first. Yummy!"
