Before my throwback post, I got to spend some time with my nephew this weekend. He is just the cutest and already likes books. It makes my teacher heart happy!
Now it's time for some ice cream cake. Enjoy!__________________________________________________________________________________

Today I thought I would share another one of my favorite dessert recipes with you and this one is perfect for summer. It can be made with a ton of different combinations but my favorite is the mint chocolate chip version. It is a hit at parties and is usually gone very quickly.
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie
1 pack of Oreo cookies
3 Tb. butter or margarine, melted
1 quart of vanilla ice cream
1 quart of mint chocolate chip ice cream
2 cups of whipped topping
hot fudge ice cream topping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine about 20 of the Oreos (2 cups) with the butter. I usually find 20 isn't enough so I do about 25. Spread in the bottom of a round, oven-safe pan. This pan needs to be at least 2 quarts deep because this pie is thick. Spread the Oreo/butter mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes and cool completely. Freeze this until ready to fill.
Scoop vanilla ice cream into crust and press to form an even layer.
Chop up some of the Oreos (about 10 or so) and sprinkle on top of the vanilla ice cream.
Scoop the mint chocolate chip ice cream onto the top of the Oreo layer. Press down to form an even layer.
Spread about 2 cups of the thawed whipped topping onto the top of the ice cream.
Heat up the hot fudge and pour a little on the top of the pie for decoration.
Freeze the pie for at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
In other news, I am slowly working on my back to school literacy centers for second grade.
Do you have any suggestions for skills that you would like to see included? I already have subject/predicate, questions, and statements.
Have a great Thursday!
