Gazillion Calorie Bourbon Macaroon Dessert

This cake is literally loaded with calories and guaranteed to put you on sugar overload for a long time. The thing is, it is also delicious and you ought to know how to make it!

You will need:
Macaroons....  about 2 dozen should do it.
Bourbon... 1/4 cup 
 8 ounces of softened cream cheese
14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk
12 ounces or so of whipped cream
toasted pecans chopped . or plain pecans if you wish.

Soak the crushed macaroons in some Bourbon. Don't make it watery or swimming in the stuff, just enough to thoroughly coat and let them soak in it.
Spray a Jello mold or a pretty bowl with cooking spray and then line with plastic wrap.
  Take your bourbon soaked cookies and press them into the pan creating a kind of shell.
With a mixer, combine the cream cheese  and condensed milk  into a smooth creamy mixture.
Now add the nuts and fold in the whipped cream.
Spoon this mixture into the macaroon shell.
Cover with tight wrap and freeze it until firm.

To serve this, just turn the bowl or mold over  and tap lightly. You can also use a warmed tea towel on the bottom for a few seconds to loosen the frozen dessert. You want it to come out in a ball.
Remove the plastic cling wrap and decorate with whipped cream.
  Drizzle   with some nice caramel sauce or chocolate sauce
You can find a nice caramel recipe   HERE.
