Got it! Here are Ms. Jane's yummy(Thy Hand Hath Provided) Ingredients:

24 ice cream sandwiches (Fat Boys)
16 ounces of cool whip
1 jar caramel sundae topping
1 bag of your favorite candy, coarsely chopped (Jane used Reeses peanut butter cups)

Here are my still yummy Ingredients:

Cut out tones of fat and no one said anything but wonderful things about it! Love that. Thanks for the input!! xoxo
