Hoppy Half Birthday Papa Z!

Earlier this week we celebrated Papa Z's half birthday. Yes, I said "Half Birthday!" In the Zany family we celebrate half birthdays! Unfortunately he had to work the whole day-why his work doesn't let you have the day off on your half birthday is beyond belief! Papa Z was very "hoppy" with his half birthday dessert. The recipe came from the wonderful Taste of Home collection!

Easy Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

  • 4 cups mint chocolate chip ice cream, softened
  • 1 chocolate crumb crust (8 inches)
  • 5 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chocolate-covered peppermint candies
  • Chocolate hard-shell ice cream topping

Directions: Spread ice cream into crust. Sprinkle with cookies and candies; drizzle with ice cream topping. Freeze until firm. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving.

Zany thought of the day: Patience my little grasshopper...Patience!
