I just had to try this recipe because of the unique flavour combination (dates, marshmallows & Oreo cookies???). My DH & I both loved this dessert. I used Ultra low fat Cool Whip in place of the heavy cream so it wasn't too high in fat. You should try this recipe - I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised!!
