Mint Chip Freeze

I'm a retired home economics teacher and have quite a collection of recipes from my classes. My students really like this refreshing frozen dessert made with ice cream and sandwich cookies. - Mrs. Robert Lamb Daleville, Indiana

    This is a family celebration favorite. Everyone looks forward to it. It is always the requested(and expected) dessert. It is quick and easy to prepare.

    I made this recipe for an Easter potluck and although it was good, I had to use store bought chocolate sauce because the sauce made with the recipe directions did not thicken up even though I double checked the ingredients, so I didn't use it. What did I do wrong?? It tasted fine and was a big hit, but was messy when it thawed. And ice cream cartons are smaller now but that didn't seem to alter the recipe at all. I love mint ice cream so the flavor was great!

    Our family really loves this frozen treat. I made it for a Birthday celebration and it was a hit. My girls still talk about it. My girls really enjoy looking through the Taste of Home cook books for fun. Whenever they come across this recipe they talk about the good memories, the fantastic taste and how they want it again.
