It’s Thursday and this is one of my favorite desserts. You don’t have to make it with peppermint ice cream, any kind will work fine. I do love peppermint so this is perfect for the holidays.
Melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup butter. Add 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk. Cook until thickened and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Cool
Preheat oven to 350
Mix 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup sugar and 3/4 cup milted butter. Pat firmly all but 1 cup of crumbs into 9 x 13 pan and bake 10 minutes. Cool and spread with 1/2 gallon peppermint stick ice cream.
Cover with 1 cup nuts, then cool fudge, then 12. oz. cool whip. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs and freeze.
This is not a very healthy recipe but it is yummy. I do buy my graham crackers at the health food store and my margarine. You don’t want to use anything with partially hydrogenated shortening.
