    I don't like an Oreo crust so I use chocolate graham crackers and crush them finely. I use the same amount of butter and the same amount of cracker crumbs as Oreos . You will be amazed it's like eating a chocolate candy bar with Carmel crust.I have made this recipe many times. I get rave reviews every time !

    I made this for my brother and it was awesome! I did add more butter to the crust.

    Yummmmm. I'd rate this a 6 if I could! Only change I made was to use caramel sauce for ice cream instead of melting caramels because I can't find caramels in any stores here! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!!
