Grasshopper Cake

So a grasshopper walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, we have a drink named after you!"  The grasshopper pauses and replies, "You have a drink named Bob?"

I digress...my children, without a blink, request this dessert for their birthday cake.  It is so simple and refreshing you just won't be able to contain a smile!

25 fudge mint cookies
3 tablespoons of butter
1 gallon of mint chocolate chip ice cream
1 container 8oz of cool whip

Preheat oven 350 degrees.  In a 9x13 pan scoop butter into pan and place in warming oven to melt.  While that is melting, blitz the 25 cookies in a food processor.  When butter is melted pour cookie crumbs into pan and press evenly to make a crust with a fork.  Bake crust for about 8 minutes.  Let cool.  Take ice cream out of freezer and let soften on the counter as the crust cools.  Once the ice cream is soft dump into a large bowl, add cool whip and mix the two together till smooth.  Pour onto crust and spread evenly then pop it back into the freezer.  How simple is that?

Enjoy your cool dessert!
