Peppermint Dessert

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.

Fudge Layer:

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.
