My favorite Creme de Menthe/Oreo Fudge Ice Cream Pie!

When I started blogging a year ago today I had no clue what direction I was heading into and still don't have a clue.  Story of my life - clueless but happy :)  But, I am having pure fun and that's what counts. Right?  I started with a few recipes and 
today I want to share with you one of my ultimate favorite desserts!  It is pretty simple to make, yet it tastes elegant!  My photograph does not do it justice.   ( The Creme de Menthe syrup just gives this a little different flavor.  And the syrup does not have alcohol so this delicious treat is good to go for everybody!  A great dessert for this Holiday season!

Crème de Menthe/Oreo Fudge
Ice Cream Pie

20 to 30 Oreo cookies
3 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 stick margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
3 eggs, beaten
½ gallon vanilla ice cream
¼ cup crème de menthe syrup

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch pan
Crush cookies and evenly line them in the pan
Melt butter and chocolate together. 
Add beaten eggs to mix and stir until thickened
Stir in powdered sugar and mix thoroughly
Pour this evenly over the cookie crumbs
Soften ½ gallon Ice Cream.
Once soft, stir in ¼ cup Crème de Menthe syrup
Spread over frozen cookie crumb layer
Top with Oreo crumbs
Remove from freezer 10 to 15 minutes before serving

Creme de Menthe syrup can be tough to find in some areas.  I had a tough time this year but finally found it at Caribou Coffee Shop!  I originally found it at World Market. and Starbucks. 
You can add food coloring if you like. 
This is an old recipe that I had before frozen yogurt was available.  I think I might try experimenting with frozen yogurt next time.  

Print this amazing recipe!  It just might change your life.......  Are you ready?

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.   Easter is a close second (just because there is nothing better in my world than Easter candy)  But I love Thanksgiving because it is time spent with family without the pressure of gifts.   Good food, great family time with the most wonderful people in your life - priceless! 
Hoping your Turkey day tomorrow is wonderful  And enjoy  :)

Bread Box Clutter Keeper

Weeks ago I found this old $2 bread box at Goodwill.   I am always in search of ways to hide clutter.  And this could hide a lot!  (Warning - put on your shades for the next photo!)
So....I grabbed one of my favorite spray paints, Rustoleum 2x in Berry Pink.  I found a pink and green small ceramic pull at Hobby Lobby (Their knobs are all 50% off this week - this cutie was $1.00!)  And yea, it looks really bright here but this is actually a wonderful color.  So cheerful
I have not done anything to the interior, yet.   And I'm thinking of stressing or glazing at some point but, for now, this sits in my kitchen hiding most of the things we use daily.  And...I actually found another box just like this!  I'm trying to decide what color to use on the second one.  It will be storing some of my art supplies and I plan on giving it a very different look than it's "sister"!
Thanks for stopping by!  

By the way, this has to be one of my shortest posts ever.   I'm working on keeping it light :)
