If frozen overnight, let stand at room temp for 20 minutes before serving. Cut into slices and dust with powdered sugar and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
* Mine had a spot that didn't have ice cream and I think that it was because I let my ice cream get too soft and it just slid down, so try to time it just right!
* A healthly tip: your can use egg beaters instead of eggs and use whole wheat pastry flour in place of the white flour
