Probably the best thing about it is that you don’t need an ice cream maker, yet you still get rich and creamy ice cream! Plus, it’s no-bake so there’s no need to turn on the oven – perfect for the hot weather we’ve been having!
It’s loaded with chocolate and peanut butter flavor and has a great Oreo crust! My kind of dessert! 🙂
