"I took the best parts of two ice cream dessert recipes and added my own touches to come up with this chocolaty layered treat," notes Ruth Yoder from Grantsville, Maryland. "At our family gatherings and quilting parties, it never fails to draw compliments."
These nests look and taste fancy but have only three ingredients. They've been very popular with our girls and their friends over the years. You can substitute any flavor ice cream for the mint chocolate chip.—Claire Hudson, South Wales, New York
This special dessert is a family tradition for Christmas dinner at our house. It's not too rich after a big meal, and it can be made ahead to give you time for other last-minute preparations. I've always loved trying new recipes, desserts especially.
"This terrific topping is a real treat over chocolate ice cream," writes field editor DeEtta Rasmussen of Fort Madison, Iowa. "It's fun and fancy at the same time and much cooler to make on hot days than a German chocolate cake."
