This was easy to make and good. How could you screw up Breyers? I altered it only by using more ice cream than called for, occasionally, you could experience a bit of heat from the pepper, which, IMO didn't make a difference in taste one way or the other. I would make it again, however I would omit the pepper, use less graham cracker crumbs, because I thought the crust was too thick and use semi-sweet chocolate pieces instead of using a chocolate bar.
