Do you remember these two? Well after years of dreaming of having family near-by, my niece and nephew-in-law are new Idahoans! To celebrate their arrival, new jobs, just cause we love um', and can, we had a little get together and I made this outrageously easy and heavenly dessert.
Snappy Turtle Dessert
is one of our family's favorite treats that is layered and luscious! It's quick to throw together and forget in the freezer until you need it. I've served it at parties, taken it to potlucks, and been glad to have it ready when friends stop by.
|"What is this?" I have given prizes to those who figure it out!|
|Secret ingredients; ice cream sandwiches, whipped topping, butterscotch-caramel sauce and toasted pecans or almonds.|
That's it, what could be easier?
So let's snap to it! Start by toasted your choice of nuts.
|I used these little fatties this time because they were in my freezer and I wanted to use them up. Usually I use about 15 regular ice cream sandwiches for each layer.|
|I used about 17 fatties. Cut them in half to fill the edges. Shoot for a snug fit!|
|Now add the butterscotch-caramel sauce, toasted nuts, and half the whipped topping.|
|Top with another layer of ice cream sandwiches...|
|and cover with remaining whipped topping. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hours before serving.|
Make Hot Fudge Sauce with butter, chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.
|Stir every few minutes and keep warm. Careful it will scorch.|
|Depending on how big you slice it, this recipe makes 12 to 20 generous servings. Top with hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and garnish with whipped cream, nuts and a cherry or berry on top.|
Share some hugs and snappy love...
