Favorite things Friday and I've been tagged

I have been tagged by the wonderful Emma for a recipe exchange. I am not a cook at all. Lucky for me my husband does all the cooking. But I do have a Fantastic dessert. This is my favorite in the whole world! Instead of cake on my birthday I have this. It takes a while to make but it is so worth it in the end. Actually it is good it takes a while because otherwise I would weigh 750 pounds.

Since this is one of my favorite things I thought I would combine the two. Here are the rules: (mine is not a holiday thing but you can make it for the holidays)

With the busy holiday season fast approaching I thought this would be a good time for a recipe exchange. If you’d like to participate please make a new post in your blog with your favorite holiday dish. A story to go along with why that particular dish is so special to you would be great too! Then, leave a comment for me with a link to your recipe post.

Next, pick at least 5 blogger buddies to include in the recipe exchange. Leave this comment for them:
"I’ve chosen you to join in a blogger buddy recipe exchange! Check out my blog to find out more about it!"
As new recipe comments come in, your blog readers will be able to enjoy other’s recipes as well.


Makes 2 pies
1/2 gallon neopolitan ice cream (try to get it in a box because it will make it easier)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1 can pet milk
2 graham cracker pie crusts (I prefer chocolate but I always prefer chocolate so it does not matter)

In a medium sauce pan melt butter and chocolate chips. Add sugar and pet milk and bring to a rolling boil for 8 minutes while stirring the whole time. Take off heat and add vanilla. Let cool all the way.

To put together you will do this in layers:
Slice the ice cream by flavors. So in the bottom layer put what ever flavor of ice cream you want first. Add a layer of chocolate on top and then freeze (usually about an hour-1 and half hours) The more frozen it is makes it easier for the next layer. Then keep doing this adding a layer of ice cream then a layer of chocolate until the flavors are done (3layers of ice cream in total).

There you have me it is the best ice cream pie in the world!!! When you cut it it looks pretty to because you have the different color layers.

I hope you all enjoy!

As for who I am going to tag....I am going to tag Heather, Dora, Sunny in Seattle, Shelby, and Carrie.
If I have tagged you, you're it (just cut and paste and answer them on your blog!). Can't wait to see your recipes so I can give my husband things to make me hehe.

Shelby said...

Oooh, I'll have to find something! While I am an expert at eating (my expanding waistline is solid gold proof of this), I'm abysmal as a cook. But I'll try!
