yesss ! this recipe combines oreos and ice cream into such a delicious summer treat. it’s so easy to whip together.

i used 6 T of butter and the crust was a little too firm for my liking, so i think next time i’ll use 4 T instead. i just drizzled the chocolate syrup across the ice cream in a grid or basket weave pattern, not a “thin layer” like the recipe called for, so i thought the final product turned out to be sweet enough. i ended up only using one container of whipped cream; that was plenty. i’m not a huge fan of whipped cream anyway, so i didn’t use 2 containers like the original recipe called for.

i was pretty happy with how this turned out; it was very tasty and not too sweet. added to the archive since this will not be the last time i make this !
