    What a neat recipe! It really plays with your senses! the cold ice cream is actually hot and the warm sauce is actually soothing! This was a fun treat to make AND to eat. Very tasty!! Five stars for originality and flavor!  -  10 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good, but next time I would not add the butter, vodka and hot sauce. I found it a little too spicy for my family. I will definetley make this again with my new modifications.  -  19 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
