1/2 gallon Vanilla ice cream
1/2 gallon Chocolate ice cream
1/2 gallon Strawberry ice cream
1 package Oreo cookies
1 stick butter, melted

Fresh whipped cream or Cool Whip
Shaved Chocolate
Caramel Topping
Butterscotch Topping
Chopped pecans or other nuts
Sliced Strawberries
Sliced Bananas
Crushed Pineapple

Making the Big Ass:
Line a large mixing bowl with waxed paper. Scoop the three flavors of ice cream into the bowl in layers or randomly until the bowl is almost full or you run out of ice cream. Pack the ice cream down tightly. Crush the Oreos in a food porcessor and mix with melted butter. Pack the cookies down on top of the ice cream until evenly coated. This will ultimatley become the crust. Freeze the Big Ass for at least 4 hours.

To Serve:
When ready to serve, invert the Big Ass onto a huge serving platter. Cut the Big Ass into huge wedges and place them on large serving plates. Top each serving with the whipped cream, shaved cholate, etc. Garnish with strawberries, bananas and pineapple. Finally, add the nuts.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You could substitute Neapolitan Ice Cream for the three flavors. Let the Big Ass thaw slighlty before trying to cut it!
