FROZEN GRASSHOPPER TORTE…Oh My!
Look at this fabulous dessert! I couldn’t resist posting this Recipe ….also from the Taste of Home Magazine. Each month it comes, it’s loaded with Delicious looking recipes & pictures. I haven’t tried this torte, but it sounds simple, and I betcha it’s really, really good. I plan to use Oreo cookies when I make this dessert. It also calls for a jar of marshmallow cream, not to mention Whipping cream & ice cream. It will be laden with calories, but ….I think it will be worth running that extra mile! If you don’t have a springform pan, that’s o.k…just use a 9×13 baking pan instead. If you try it before I do, post a comment. Let us all know what you think.
4 cups crushed chocolate cookies (about 40)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 pint vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1/4 cup milk
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Few drops green food coloring
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
Combine cookie crumbs and butter. Set aside 1/4 cup for garnish; press remaining crumbs onto the bottom of a 9-in. springform pan, two 9-in. pie plates or a 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Chill for 30 minutes. Spread ice cream over crust. Freeze. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine milk and marshmallow creme; stir until well blended. Add extract and food coloring. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon over ice cream and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Freeze until firm. Yield: 12-16 servings.
