Frozen Oreo Dessert

20130624-205737.jpg

Serves 16-20

Crust:
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 package of Oreos, finely crushed (I used my food processor)

1/2 gallon of ice cream (Cookies & Cream & Chocolate Chip Mint are yummy)

Hot fudge Sauce:
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 Tbsp cocoa
dash of salt
1 (12oz) can evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp vanilla

To Make Sauce: Combine sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large saucepan. Slowly stir in the evaporated milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 5-6 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Stir till butter melts. Cool slightly before pouring into glass jars.

Serve warm, and store leftovers in the refrigerator. It heats up nicely in the microwave.

Makes about 2 cups, I was able to fill 4 of my jars.

Note: When I am making this just for my family, I cut the recipe in half and only boil it for 3-4 minutes. (Half a can of evaporated milk is about 3/4 cup.)

To Make Dessert: Combine melted butter and Oreo crumbs till well mixed. Press just over half of the crumbs into a 9×13″ pan. Place in the freezer. Take ice cream out of the freezer and let soften. I stirred mine up about every 15 minutes till it was spreadable. Spread softened ice cream on top of frozen crust. Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top. Cover and freeze for several hours or till firm.

Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving. Cut into squares and drizzle with hot fudge sauce.
