How to Make Caramel Pecan / Butter Brickle Ice Cream Dessert


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree

    Mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, and pecans in a large bowl.
  2. Add the butter and mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread mixture evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

    Watch closely, that it doesn't burn. I set my timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes; with a spatula, I flip it the crumbles, trying not to break it up into too small of pieces. Place back in oven for another 3 - 4 minutes...keeping a close eye on it, so as not to burn.
  4. When done, take from oven, and place half the crumbs in the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish or pan. spread evenly.

    Pour half the jar of sauce as evenly as possible over the crumbs.
  5. Open box of ice cream, and slice into about 1 inch slices.
  6. Place slices evenly over crumbs. It will start softening, as it does, smooth out so there are no cracks.
  7. Sprinkle remaining crumbs evenly over the ice cream, and drizzle with remaining ice cream topping.

    Cover and place in freezer until frozen.

    I run a knife under hot water and slice into individual square servings.
