I love the convenience of having a dessert ready made.
This next recipe combines all these loves together. I found this gem of a recipe at Daily Essentials and Deals. There, the recipe is named Oreo Ice Cream Dessert because the star of the recipe is Oreos, naturally.
However, I name my version, Ice Cream Oreo Dessert because I make ice cream the focus. The original recipe pairs Oreos with vanilla ice cream, cool whip and chocolate sauce. So, enough yakking, here is the recipe:
The bottom is a Oreo crust.
I take 1 package of Oreos and crush them up.
(To crush them I put them into a Ziploc bag and smash them up. You could use a food processor)
Put them in a 9x13 pan and pour 1/4 cup of melted butter over it and press crumbs together.
Next add 1/2 gallon of ice cream.
I used vanilla but you can use any kind you like.
*Use small scoops so you have enough to go over the whole pan*
Pour chocolate syrup (or caramel!) over it.
Depending on what ice cream you use you may not need to add this. Think of all the possibilities - black cherry ice cream with chocolate syrup ... moose tracks with caramel ... butter pecan with caramel.
Top with small tub of Cool Whip
I add a little more chocolate syrup on top of the Cool Whip.
Freeze... It's Delicious!!!
My version replaces the vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cup ice cream (Great Value brand) and caramel sauce for a decadent taste sensation. It kind of reminds me of a Dairy Queen Blizzard Ice Cream Cake.
While being rich in ice cream is a great thing, having spiritual riches is even better.
