This is one of those recipes. You know the recipe you have to make. It's like a siren's song. Resistance is futile and nothing good is going to come about it. Want to know why? The description says "This tastes like a Mounds bar!"
Really? Prove it to me because I might like ice cream if it tastes like a Mounds bar.
Does it taste like a Mounds bar? Let's put it this way... when I tasted the mixture before it was churned in the ice cream maker. I giggled out loud and "Oh shit, it really does taste like a Mounds bar!" and was absolutely delighted with the results.
i actually ate this bowl of ice cream... go figure
