“This "Buster Bar Freeze" is beyond words, after tasting this at a friends BBQ last summer, I was hooked. I just recently got the recipe from her, and just couldn't wait until the summer to post it, but don't wait until then to make it, this is a decadent dessert for any season--you will love this! (Note: prep time includes freezing time).”
