Do you ever have those "where has this been my whole life?!" moments? This dessert was one of those when I first tried it. My mom whipped this up on day, and we were all head over heels in love. If you've ever seen "Arrested Development," there is a scene when Michael goes to visit his father in prison. He is talked to his dad while the dad is eating an ice cream sandwich. While the son is in the middle of a sentence, it shows the dad eating the ice cream sandwich lovingly and says, "I am having a love affair with this ice cream sandiwch." That always made me laugh. Now, if that dad was loving that ice cream sandiwch, he would flip out if he tasted this! It's a beefed-up ice cream sandwich. It'll blow your mind how easy it is. And don't forget about how delicious it is. Ridiculous.
