I want to try this but I don't understand the "spread ice cream" part of instructions. Am I supposed to soften the ice cream?

thanks norma :) i scoop it out onto the crumble - and as the crumble is still a little warm it melts a bit - then i spread with a spatula. softening it first would work too! let me know how it turns out!
