I quite liked this one. I mixed it with some cookie dough at the very end to make home made cookie dough ice cream and it tastes just like a major fast food resturants cookie dough concoction (and I should know; I used to work there!). I will definitely be making this one again, and again, and again. The mix in options are endless! Going to try Oreos next.


Very very easy and super tasty.

Made this last night and topped it with hot fudge from another recipe on here. It was delicious.
