The Star of this day is my Brother.
While growing up my older brother was my idol, my protector, the one person I knew would always be there. He had a tough role in our family as the ‘man’ of our household with five of us kids and my mom. It wasn’t expected of him, but he took on the role just the same.
had freaked him out so bad he couldn’t sleep. We made a pact that night that I wouldn’t tell anyone, afterall you can’t be a 14 year old guy and be afraid of a movie, right? (Oh my…I’m still afraid of that movie!) We sat up at 2:00 in the morning talking and waiting for the sun to rise. The comfort of a sister and brother….knowing it was ok to confide in each other…the secret was ours.
It certainly isn’t easy, but it’s worth the peace that follows.
Just be aware of the repercussions.
He said it was better than he remembered.
- 2 packages midel chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed (reserve 1/2 cup for top)
- 1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 Pint Haagen-Dazs chocolate ice cream, softened
- 1 Pint Haagen-Dazs vanilla bean ice cream, softened
- 1 Pint Dulce de Luche ice cream softened
- 1 cup spanish peanuts
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 12 oz can evaporated milk
- 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 (12 oz) container whipped buttercream frosting (Betty Crocker)
- 1 (8 oz) container cool whip
Mix together the crushed cookies (minus reserved 1/2 cup), butter, and sugar and press firmly into 13×9 pan. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Spread the crust with the Chocolate ice cream, smoothing over all. Top with the vanilla bean ice cream and smooth over all. (I found it worked best to put the softened ice cream in a separate bowl and stir with a rubber spatula to make it easier to spread.)
