This is always a hit at our house with adults and kids- everyone loves it and wants the recipe. I don't use the whipped cream or cherries & put a little of the caramel on top before the crunchy topping. It takes a while to freeze.

Absolutely delicious! Everybody loved it and thought the recipe was much more complicated... nobody believed it was so easy to make.

I usually freeze this for at least 4 hours before serving. [I posted this recipe.]
