      This recipe gets 5 stars for the fudge sauce alone! I saw the recipe and loved the idea. I had white chocolate macadamia cookies that weren't getting eaten so I used that as the crust and adjusted the butter accordingly and for the middle layer I used some cookies n' cream ice cream and poured the fudge sauce on top. Left out the garnish (topping layer) and made in a springform pan. Love it! Thank you posting and inspiring me. I will definitely be making the fudge sauce to use in the future too.
