That should give you some idea of how crazy life has been around here lately!
Seriously – Angel girl and I were looking through the pictures on the computer and found this one.
I had no idea what is was or why we made it.
Then a few days later I found the remainder of this frozen dessert in the freezer.
So I put my finger in it to see if I could tell what it was. Yum. I put another finger in to further test my taste buds. Then the girls saw me and put their fingers in to check it. After we had eaten at least 2 of the 4 pieces, Angel Girl remembered making this treat on her night to cook – months ago.
We had been trying to use up some of the many things left-over from the Golden Anniversary (which was in April).
Yes. It’s been in my freezer since then.
But it’s gone now. Devoured in the basement in front of the freezer using our fingers. 🙂
Since we created this dish ourselves, I’m not sure what we should call it – Left-over Surprise, Freezer Special? Hmm… maybe not.
Since we were using the left-over fixings for ice cream sundaes – let’s go with Ice Cream Sundae Bars.
Ice Cream Sundae Bars
1 sleeve of Oreo cookies (about 14)
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
1 quart ice cream, any flavor (we used the left-over vanilla)
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
1 cup chocolate sauce (we used Nana’s amazing recipe)
Cool Whip (as much as you want)
chocolate sprinkles (just because we could!)
Mix the oreos and melted butter and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Freeze for an hour.
Spread the ice cream over the oreo’s and cover with the peanuts and the chocolate sauce. Freeze for another hour.
Frost with Cool Whip and sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles. Freeze.
This will obviously keep for months in your freezer if you should happen to forget that you made it! 🙂
