Yummy Recipe

Last night at my Bible study group we celebrated Christmas. We throw ourselves an annual Christmas party and exchange gifts and enjoy potluck food. Each of us was asked to bring a dish of our choice, whether sweet or salty. Of course most of it was sweets. Well, my favorite in particular was homemade ice cream sandwiches! And they're not made with ice cream. They're made with cool whip, milk, pudding mix and sandwiched between graham crackers. Oh they were heavenly. I had never had one before and the lady that made them said they would be a great dessert to make for my kids.
So here's the recipe. It's really, really easy.
1 4oz box of pudding ( she used vanilla flavored)
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups cool whip
16 graham crackers (halved)

In medium bowl, blend in the pudding to the milk with electric mixer. When well mixed, fold in cool whip. On a plate or pan placed 8 halved graham crackers and dollop the cool whip mixture on top of each. Top each with the other half to make a sandwich. Immediately freeze them for at least 2 hours. They will be soft enough to eat if serving thereafter. If you are planning to store them, move them from the pan to ziploc bags. When serving at a later time, they only take about 10 minutes to soften for eating.

You can vary on the pudding flavor and the graham cracker flavor. I'm going to try some strawberry flavored with chocolate graham crackers. I will update and let you know how they turn out.
