In honor of Memorial Day, the “official” start of the summer season, I’m going to share a delicious frozen dessert.
My youngest sister gets credit for introducing this treat to the family. She spent a few summers working in the kitchen of Twin Lakes Bible Camp near Manson, Iowa.
She came away with some great friendships and several amazing recipes, this one included.
It’s fast, refreshing and very easy to make.
Green Dragon Dessert
Crush: 1 pound of Hydrox chocolate cookies (store brand also works), and 6 Butterfinger bars.
Mix crumbs with 1/2 cup of melted butter.
Layer 1/2 of the crumbs in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
Spoon on mint chocolate chip ice cream to cover. Smooth out.
Sprinkle with remaining crumbs.
Freeze. You should slightly thaw before serving.
This is a perfect dessert to make ahead and have ready for the cook-out or family get-together this summer. A no-bake delight that is cold, refreshing, and full of chocolate!
