Really good. It was a nice light dessert to top off Christmas feast. I too added crushed candy to the filling and sprinkled some on the top with a little of the crushed Oreos.

This was So easy to make but did not hold up well. I think it actually melts faster then ice cream if thats possible. I kept having to take it out of t he freezer and stick it back in when no one was eating it. Very annoying.

This was really good. It was even better 2 days later. I added 2 or 3 cups more WF chocolate cookies with chocolate filling crumbs with the same amount of butter (it helps to spray the pan also)in a 9" deep dish pie pan. I froze it for and hour then covered it with foil so it wouldn't stick to the foil. I brought it to work and everyone enjoyed it and asked for the recipe! This would also, be a good base recipe to make a mint ice cream pie. Thanks for the recipe!

Tasty and festive, but next time I will definitely leave the cake in the freezer for several hours longer than specified. The cake was still a bit runny.

This recipes is fantastic! I made a graham cracker crust rather than a chocolate wafer one and will always make it that way as it paired beautifully. I added red food coloring to the cream cheese mixture and 3 fourths of the whipping cream. Folded in the whipping cream blending the color to a nice pink. With the remaining white quarter of whipping cream I used it to make a marble effect with the pink and it looked great. Wonderful recipe and will continue to make it!

brought it to a family party and it was a hit. the only problem was that it melted quickly so i wouldnt suggest it for a buffet!

My christmas company could not say enough good things about this cake. I highly recommend it - it's the perfect christmas dessert for buffets.
