“Found in Simple and Delicious magazine from Jul 2009. I forgot how much we loved this dessert that summer. It is not hard to put together but you do have to allow plenty of time for freezing so I'd make it the night before you actually want to serve it (or at least very early in the morning the day of ). To soften ice cream set it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before using, or let stand at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.”
