Delicious !!! This a great dessert for anytime you need something impressive but light. Other than using more ice cream than called for (since I needed to fill a larger bowl), the only thing I did differently was to add 2 Tablespoons of Cointreau to the filling mixture. Since I needed more ice cream I made layers of strawberry, vanilla, chocolate.
