Reviews for Caramel Pecan Ice Cream Dessert
"This is so GOOD! My husband loves it!! Made just as printed except I didn't have enough of caramel ice cream topping so put that in the middle & used hot fudge ice cream topping(heated in microwave a few seconds so it would pour easier) on top! Being a chocolate lover, this made it even better."
"This reminded me of Pecan pie A La Mode.Its very rich and plenty sweet.I will definitely make again"
"So, SO yummy! Hubby and kids all loved it. We will definitely make this again."
"As all recipes I make, I always cut the sugar in half automatically and then taste. If needed, I add a tablespoon of sugar at a time if I need to adjust the taste. People need to remember that you can always adjust a recipe to your personal taste."
"this is awesome"
"@ Andrea7568. Desserts are always full of calories and fat. Instead of complaining, just don't make them.....eat a banana instead. This dessert is great for potlucks, company dinners and family get-togethers. Everyone I have served it to has had nothing but praise for it. Try it, you will like it."
"Made this last night and it was to sweet won't be making it again."
"Just made this for Easter. It was excellent."
"A real summer treat, so refreshing, a great finale for your summer party. Have made this often, the crumb mixture can be made ahead and stored for a later time. This is a make again at our house."
"I loved the pecans and oats! So good!"
"I made this for a four-generation family dinner for 16 and it was enjoyed by young and older alike. It was a nice change from the pies that are usually associated with the family dinners I attend. Tastes good with walnuts too. I make it often now. This dessert is deliciously different and decadent and a little portion will go a long way."
"This has ben a family favorite since the 1960s. If I only want to make a few servings, I make the full topping recipe and freeze it in a plastic bag. To serve, I make some ice cream balls and roll them in the topping and then pop them back in the freezer until serving time. Yummy!"
"To lower fat & calorie count you could substitute fat free yougurt ice cream. I find it to be very satisfying"
"I've made this a few times to take to potlucks, and others always want the recipe."
"This is my favourite dessert. Haven't had it for awhile will be making it for the harvest crew pronto. Delicious."
"Wonderful taste but too many calories, carbs, and fat. Publish a healthified version, if possible. Thanks."
"Nice recipe but unfortunately doesn't travel well. What was I thinking! Carmel solidified with the crumb mixture making it very hard to chew. Taste was good though."
"I was looking for a fast tasty dessert to serve after a Mexican dinner and thisone seemed to have all the right ingredients. I did find that it was best to serve right out of the freezer as it softened very quickly probably due to the caramel being on as well. I will be making the crunch part of this dessert to serve crumbled over homemade ice cream at our family's 4th of July get together this year. With a little caramel and the crunch part, it will taste much the same and I know will be a hit."
"This is a very rich and wonderful dessert! I took it to a secret sister social gathering and everyone wanted the recipe."
