Last night Justin and I hosted a little family get together. We celebrated Justin’s and Cory’s August birthdays! Justin turned 34 on the 11th and Cory is turning 24 on the 27th. My parents, Justin’s parents, Mark & Georgia and Rick & Cory were all able to share a meal and laugh together.
I decided for dessert I wanted to make something that I had at one of my bridal showers. A neighbor of Justin’s parents, who I have actually known since I was a little girl, co-hosted a shower and made a wonderful dessert. After enjoying it myself I insisted she email or Facebook me the recipe. Luckily she did! Below is the recipe for the little, frozen piece of heaven.
Irish Crunch Dessert
1 package Nabisco Chocolate Wafers (found in cookie aisle)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 gallon of Peppermint BonBon Ice Cream
1 jar of fudge
1 8 oz. container of Cool Whip
Crush package of wafers. Melt butter and combine with wafters. Reserve 1/2 cup of crushed wafers for topping. Spread cookie mixture at the bottom of 9×13 pan.
Spread 1/2 gallon of ice cream over cookie layer. (Leaving ice cream out for a few minutes makes it easier to spread.)
Spread jar of fudge over ice cream layer. (Heating up fudge makes it easier to spread.)
Spread Cool Whip over fudge layer. Sprinkle reserved wafter crumbs on top.
Once the final layer is frozen: cut, serve, and enjoy!
