Loved this dessert. Definitely over-baked the cookie dough though, it was too hard, not chewy enough. And VERY difficult to cut and get out of the pan in one piece! Stuck to the bottom. I used vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate as we prefer that. It was delicious though, will tweak and try again.

My family loved this dessert! It's the perfect blend of creamy and chewy and was very easy to make.

I haven't made this yet but it sounds like one I would like. What size pan is being used, i.e, 8 x 8 or 9 x 12?

I've made something similar before but I layered it differently.
First, you can line the pan with two strips of parchment paper (to make removing it easier.
After preparing the cookie dough as described, warm the hot fudge and spread over the cookie layer while still warm. Freeze until firm. Spread the ice cream on top of that and pour room temperature chocolate syrup (or caramel syrup)on top of the ice cream. Freeze again (to prevent the syrup from speading into the whipped cream). Cover with the whipped cream and toffee chips.
Hope that helps - it really is a great recipe!!!

I found this recipe really hard to get out of the pan! Not to mention spreading hot fudge, even at room temperature, over ice cream! I even followed my own tip and froze the ice cream after spreading over the crust. I will not be making this again. One star, maybe.

Used regular toffee chips. Used a "coffee" type ice cream. I'd also put the hot fudge on the cookie layer NOT on the ice cream. It's kinda a mess and really isn't easy at all to spread around even when the ice cream freezes overnight. Ice Cream turned to soup even after the cookie cooled for 45 minutes. I'd recommend putting it in the freezer or refrigerating overnight instead.

Definitely NOT a 4 star dessert but it is tasty. I would change the steps a little and have noted that in "tips". I also used regular toffee chips and substituted a mocha chip ice cream instead of the plain chocolate.

Try freezing the ice cream prior to adding the hot fudge; you may find it easier to spread.

Gunner87--Here is where the "hot fudge" is, it's instruction #4: Spoon ice cream over crust; spread evenly. Spoon "ice cream topping"(HOT FUDGE is the topping!) by teaspoonfuls onto ice cream; carefully spread evenly. Carefully spread whipped cream over topping. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup toffee bits. Freeze 1 1/2 hours or until firm. Cut into squares. Store in freezer.
