    Made a crust with graham crumbs instead of the cones. A little too sweet; probably should use 1/2 jar of the toppings next time. Oh, also will freeze the first layer for an hour or so before adding the hot fudge.... it sank right in the softened ice cream.

    I made this for my daughter's former teacher and it was loved by all. Today, I'm taking it to my daughter's 4th grade classroom for her birthday treat. YUM!
