Everyone liked this a lot. With reviews saying this was too sweet, I made some minor changes. I doubled the crust (using only 1/3 cup sugar instead of 1/2), used a springform pan, omitted the nuts (hubby is allergic). I used 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream + tsp. vanilla whipped to a hard peak (whatever you call it) thus eliminating the need for cool whip (which is really sweet, sugar already added), folded it into already mixed 12 oz cream cheese + sweetened condensed milk. For the oatmeal portion I used 1/4 cup b. sugar not packed. I used less than a cup of smuckers butterscotch caramel topping (it's not two flavors, but combined in the jar) which is really sweet. I used a springform with 2 layers. I ended up using only 1/3 the oatmeal mixture, could have used 2/3. Think of an ice cream sundae and what toppings you'd like on it. If you like candy toppings like snickers or butterfingers smashed up, use those instead of the "brickle". If you prefer chocolate fudge topping, use that. The cream cheese/condensed milk/whipped cream is what the "ice cream" will taste like (it tastes better frozen with the topping on, than by itself unfrozen). Be careful, if you use a sauce/caramel/fudge that turns rock hard when frozen, you may be disappointed! If you don't like the taste of your topping, you will also be disappointed.
