This is a delicious dessert! We used chocolate chip cookies and chocolate ice cream. I froze the cookies and ice cream for an hour and the meringue for 20 minutes. We baked it a little hotter the second time we made this (450 for 3 minutes) and it came out a lot firmer. We'll make this again-it may become a Father's Day tradition! Thanks~
