This is a wonderful dessert that you can make up ahead of time and freeze. It is served frozen--a dessert that you can have in the freezer just waiting for those unexpected guests. In the summer I keep one on hand to serve after a BBQ. Nice and refreshing on a nice warm day. But wonderful after any meal. I have been making this recipe for years and got the recipe out of a community book. Enjoy!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, pecans, brown sugar and rolled oats.
  2. Add melted butter and mix well.
  3. Pat in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Crumble while still warm. Then cool and put half of the crumb mixture in a 9x13-inch pan (or Tupperware container).
  5. Drizzle the crumbs with half of the caramel sauce. Next spread the ice cream over the caramel, (ice cream slightly melted to make spreading easier).
  6. Top with remaining crumbs and drizzle the remainder of the caramel sauce over the top. Cover and freeze.
  7. To serve: Cut into serving slices. (Remove from freezer 1/2 hour before serving).

Well, it might be a great summer dessert, but even in our cooler weather (Golly, but it's cold ~ Below 60 degrees already!) it's A WONDERFUL DESSERT! I put it together using a homemade caramel sauce, toasted pecans & a French vanilla ice cream ~ GREAT TASTING & so easy to get to the table once frozen! Thanks for the keeper!

Totally agree with Dotty2 and Merlot - a wonderful make ahead - great to have on hand for those unexpected guests, a perfect summer dessert. I used pecans in the making and am sure walnuts would work well too. So easy to prepare and one everyone enjoyed - no leftovers! Thank you Dotty2 for sharing your community cookbook find.

This is wonderful. I made it while traveling with our friends. They loved it and asked for the recipe. I agree that this is great to have on hand in the freezer for unexpected guests. It so easy to make too. Thanks for sharing, Dotty2.
