Yummy Dessert

Last night we had the missionaries over from church for dinner.  I wanted to make something EASY for dinner and dessert.  I LOVE what I ended up making so I thought I'd share.  It is so easy too.  Here's what you need

Some kind of concentrate juice ( I choose pink lemonade and it was AWESOME )
vanilla ice cream
cool whip
butter ( Ironic after I just wrote about butter...)
grahma crackers
a little sugar

Here's what you do.  Take about half of a thing of vanilla ice cream and a can of juice from concentrate and put them in a bowl to melt together.

next take about half a thing of cool whip ( I wanted to save a little to go on top after it was done! ) and mix the cool whip, and the new ice cream mixture in a blender.  I did this just so that there weren't any ice cream lumps.  You could also do it in a standing mixer I am sure.

Next take your graham crackers ( I took two packages but mine was a little over kill ) and put them in a zip lock bag and beat them to death!

Take your rolling pin and roll out the chunks that did not break up.  Next add about 1/4 cup of sugar.  You can add more if you want it to be super sweet but mine was fine was just the 1/4 cup.  Next spread the graham cracker mixture in a pie pan on a cake pan.  Melt about 6 or so tablespoons of butter and pour on top of the graham mixture.  Mix this well and smash it to the pan like a pie crust.  Next pour the ice cream mixture on top and them stick it in the freezer.  I took it out while we were eating dinner so that it would soften slightly and then I cut it up and added a little spoonful of cool whip on top!  IT WAS SO YUMMY!  I loved it and the sour pink lemon aid was PERFECT with the graham cracker.  I have also done this with a strawberry daiquiri and it was amazing too!  Try what you like but TRY IT!  It's such a good dessert for an easy but yummy summer dish!
