About this recipe: This is a summertime favourite, especially with the children! An easy no-bake dessert, you can make this far in advance and keep in the freezer until ready to serve.
For a nice touch, make a biscuit base out of chocolate biscuits instead of digestives.
To easily remove the torte, make this in a 23cm springform cake tin lined with baking parchment or greaseproof paper.
This is a very quick and easy to do...recommend that you do not freeze it for 4 hours. Soften ice cream and serve immediately...it is not as hard that way. If you wait the full 4 hours this is as hard as a rock and the pineapple losses its taste. - 16 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This dessert is really easy and fun for the working mother. I recommend that this dessert not be placed in the freezer for a period longer than three hours. Enjoy! - 18 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
THANK GOODNESS I READ THE REVIEWS FIRST. I MADE IT FOR A GUYS B-DAY AT MY WORK AND I WAS GOING TO MAKE IT AT NIGHT, BUT THE OTHER REVIEWS WERE RIGHT, TO LONG IN THE FREEZER IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. I DID A USED A HERSHEY'S PRE-MADE CRUST, AND USED COOL WHIP AS WELL. THIS WAS A HIT. - 03 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
