Frozen Birthday Cake…

This cake is made with a chocolate graham crust with cherry vanilla ice cream, extra dark sweet cherries, my decadent homemade chocolate fudge sauce with chopped walnuts and whipped cream. All pressed into a  
spring form pan and frozen. Hint; you can make the fudge sauce a day ahead and store in the refrigerator.

This is a great fudge sauce recipe also, use over any flavor of ice-cream
