    I used ice cream with ribbons of fudge instead of vanilla and as one reviewer suggested, kept out the peanut butter cups. Everyone raved. It was amazing.

    I made a few changes to this recipe, using an Oreo crumb pie shell, fat free vanilla ice cream, and rich dark chocolate pieces instead of peanut butter cups. It was easy, and great for making ahead of time.

    Taste great, easy to make but would recommend freezing overnight

    I would make this again, but will replace the peanut butter cups with bits of a plain chocolate bar. Chocolate covered cherries are wonderful by them selves and certainly have no peanut butter anywhere near them.
