    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is an extreme decadent frozen dessert that will bring rave reviews when served to you guests or family. Don't worry about the bars melting they are just as delicious softened! No need to prepare all in one day, to save time you can make the chocolate layer a day in advance and the fudge sauce can be made up to a week in advance, refrigerated and just reheated slightly before using. Actually this is just as delicious served without the fudge sauce, but if you are serving this as an after dinner dessert to your guests, I would suggest to serve it with the sauce. Plan ahead this needs to freeze for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight before serving. Prep time is only estimated depending on freezer time. Cooking time is for baking the chocolate layer.
