Wowsa!! This was an awesome dessert! I used 35 cookies which was more than 2 cups but it was definitely just right for the butter. I made these delicious homemade sauces to go in it: Hot Fudge Sauce and Kittencal's Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce or Ice Cream Topping. I used Starbucks java chip ice cream. This could be altered with a variety of different ice creams, toppings, and crusts. Ooooohh! I'm just thinking of all the possibilities! Absolutely delish dessert!! :D
