Oreo dessert is one treat that hubby always request on his birthday along with Mexican pile up. These are two very yummy treats that we enjoy eating. I will post on Mexican pile up later; but this post is all about the Oreo's!
First off I got a huge bag (the family pack) of Oreo's cheaper then a smaller bag. I can't believe how expensive these little round cookies will put you back. Thank you Lord that I found such a great sale.
1/2 cup melted margarine
2 L vanilla ice cream
1/4-1/2 cup evaporated milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup margarine
1 square semi sweet chocolate
1/2 cup peanuts
1. Place Oreo's into a large Ziploc baggie. Using a rolling pin crush, crush, crush until the once rolled Oreos are nothing but a fine powder. Pour the crushed Oreo's into a small bowl and coat with melted butter. Spread into a 9*13 pan to form a crust and freeze.
2. Take out your 2 L of ice cream and allow to soften for a bit. Next take out your frozen crust and spread soft ice cream on top; freeze again.
3. The last step is easy you simply make up your chocolate sauce
melt margarine and chocolate square. Add sugar and milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and boil gently until thickened for about 15-20 minutes-stirring frequently.
4. Place chocolate sauce in fridge and allow to cool for about 10 min. You don't want to add super hot chocolate sauce to frozen ice cream. When cool drizzle chocolate over the top and top with peanuts. Freeze again until ready to serve
* One thing to note is that it is best if you freeze in a deep freeze. For some reason it doesn't freeze as hard in a fridge freezer.
I usually always place mine in a 9*13 pan but one friend of mine who LOVES the recipe does here's in a round spring form pan. So it looks more like an ice cream cake. If you are going to do it this way I would recommended putting something as a middle layer in the ice cream like crushed Oreo crumbs or even putting a layer of the chocolate sauce in the middle with peanuts then again on the top.
For those of you who know Micah he doesn't really like to venture outside of a recipe. So you can image how shocked I was when he suggested a few changes we could make to Oreo dessert. A Christmas treat that he received this year was a 2 L tub of black raspberry cheese cake ice cream, which is his favorite. Since this was still pretty full he suggested we use that instead of vanilla. I thought since we were using that kind of ice cream I would add some frozen raspberries to the top that were frozen in the freezer. This was a great combo and very delicious. Everyone at the party enjoyed it!!
