With its crisp crumb crust, ice cream filling and crunchy toffee topping, frozen Pistachio Cream Dessert is a cool way to top off any warm-weather meal. “I find the candy bars crush more easily when cold or frozen,” says Hazel King of Nacogdoches, Texas.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup butter-flavored cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup cold milk
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 Heath candy bars (1.4 ounces each), crushed

Directions

  1. In a microwave-safe 8-in. square dish, melt butter. Stir in cracker crumbs; press mixture onto bottom of dish. In a bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand 2 minutes or until soft-set. Whisk in ice cream. Pour over crust. Cover and freeze for 2 hours.
  2. Spread with whipped topping; sprinkle with crushed candy bars. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
