  1. I really like icecream cakes, and this one was no exception. Different from the usual icecream cakes and very yummy, specially with the maltesers in there. We loved it! :)
  2. Um, Yummy! We made this twice in one month it was so good. My guests kept asking 'what's in this?!' It was the malt balls that were the fun extra crunch. The calories are worth it on this one! Thanks for the summer treat -
