DELICIOUS! Used the brand of ice cream they tested but did not use lite. Did not have the chocolate crust so used regular graham. Put chocolate and caramel syrup on the crust before I filled. Will be on my favorites list for sure!

Made this last year and forgot to review. Really liked the coffee ice cream along with the chocolate and pecans. Would definitely fix again.

Tasty, easy recipe.  I used Turkey Hill ice cream and forgot to put the chocolate syrup on it before serving.  Hook232s idea for adding that first is what I will try next time I make this.
