A couple of weeks ago hubby and I had some friends over for dinner and they all had little kids so I wanted to make a kid friendly dessert. My Mom's Ice Cream Dessert came to mind right away. This was a win-win dessert because kids love ice cream and because ice cream has been one of my pregnancy cravings (along with millions of other women, right?). It's a cinch to make - a crushed Oreo crust with a vanilla ice cream layer and homemade hot fudge frosting. I added sprinkles to the top to make it even more appealing to the kiddos. Everyone gobbled this up. If you have left overs they keep well in the freezer. Just unthaw it for a couple of minutes before serving!
Ice Cream Dessert
From My Momma
1 package of Oreo cookies
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream - you can go crazy here and substitute whatever ice cream you want!
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3 ounces semisweet chocolate
Crunch 25 - 30 Oreos and place in the bottom of a 9X13 pan. Soften ice cream by keeping on the counter for about 20 minutes and then spread evenly over the Oreo crust.
Cover and place in the freezer until hard - about 1 hour. Make the chocolate sauce by combining the powdered sugar, butter, evaporated milk, and chocolate in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until thick. Cool the sauce for about 5 minutes, then pour over the ice cream. Add sprinkles if desired.
Cover and freeze again until serving time. Thaw for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
