I tweeked this recipe to our likes by using Immaculate's Natural Peanut Carmel Milk Chocolate refrigerated cookies, peanut butter rather than the raspberry jam, Dryer's Sugar Free Fudge Tracks Ice Cream and pecans in place of walnuts. It was delicious and addictive. Amazingly, the refrigerated cookies that I used had less sugar and calories than the sugar cookies. What an indulgence!
