Yummy Wednesday - Grandma's Minty Dessert

This is a favorite recipe in our family (always served on Christmas, and now my hubby's birthday request, too!) - and one that wins rave reviews wherever you go (from kids and adults alike!). And the best part - easy as can be!

Grandma's Minty Dessert

1/2 gallon Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream (or at Christmas-time, get Peppermint Candy ice cream!)
1 jar of Smucker's Hot Fudge Sauce
1 package Oreos
1 small container Cool Whip

Crush the entire package of Oreos, and cover the bottom of a 9x13 pan with 1/2 of the crushed cookies.
Thaw the ice cream in a bowl until it's easily stirred.
Transfer the ice cream to the 9x13 pan - spread ice cream on top of the crushed Oreos.
Place in the freezer and freeze until firm.
When the ice cream is frozen, spread the room-temperature hot fudge sauce (the whole jar!) on top of the ice cream.
Freeze once again, until the fudge is firm.
When the fudge is firm, spread the Cool Whip over the top.
Then, sprinkle the remaining crushed Oreos on top.

Mmmm.... Minty, fudgy, creamy, oreo-y Heaven!
(Next time, I'll get a picture of a slice... Once you serve it up, be quick or it's gone!!!)
