  • 1/2  cup  butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2  gallon  peppermint stick, party mint or mint chip ice cream, softened
  • 1  container  (12 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2  cup  butter or margarine
  • 4  ounces  unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
  • 2  cups  sugar
  • 1  can  (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla

Directions

1. In medium bowl, mix crushed cookies and 1/2 cup melted butter. Press mixture firmly in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan.

2. In large bowl, stir together ice cream and 2 cups of the whipped topping; spoon evenly over cookie crust. Freeze about 3 hours or until firm.

3. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter and the chocolate over low heat stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; gradually stir in milk. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until slightly thickened; stir in vanilla. Cool completely, about 2 hours.
