This recipe is so easy to make & everybody loves it.

Instead of Kahlua, I just used a cheaper coffee liqueur.

For this recipe it actually tastes better than the real thing.

Here's what we started with.


First you pour a cup or so of the coffee liqueur in the bottom of the pan.


Next you put the ice cream sandwiches in.

This pan is the perfect size for 6 sandwiches, but if yours is a different size, just trim the Klondikes to fit. 


Next you pour on more liqueur.

Then into the freezer for an hour or so.

The ice cream sandwiches will absorb a lot of the liqueur.


Then out of the freezer & a big helping of cool whip.

I make it about 3/4 to 1" thick when it's spread out.


Then it gets topped with mini chocolate chips.

And back in the freezer for a couple of hours.


When you serve it, just take a spoonful or two of the extra liqueur in the bottom of the pan and drizzle it on top.


We have been making this for 15 years & I have never had one person that just didn't love it.

This is a great dessert for the holidays!

Hope you enjoyed the show!

Thanks for looking!

Al

Looks Great, Al !!


I doubt if I'd like it though:

After my Open-Heart fiasco, you may remember my Tasting ability was messed up. Everything tasted terrible. Even Prime Rib & Bacon tasted bad.

Then after about 7 months, everything came back to just about normal, except Coffee. And I drank Black Coffee every day for nearly 50 years. Coffee still tastes bad to me. Tried it 3 times in 4 years.

No big deal---As long as Prime Rib still tastes awesome!!!

I didn't know they made them either. We used to use another brand, then 1 day I saw these in the store & bought a box.

Wouldn't you know they fit perfectly in the pan we had!

Go figure!

Well if coffee is the only thing that still tastes bad, then your lucky.

I bet you could substitute creame de mint ( spelling ), or peppermint schnopp's ( spelling again ).

Hmm Maybe---But I'd have to get it from my Son.

I don't stock any booze except Beer at the Den.

The last hard stuff I had was 22 years old, and I dumped it all in a bucket & poured it in a crack in the Driveway to kill the weeds. (Jim Beam & Crown Royal)

I'll give him the recipe though---Bear Jr & his wife will like it for one of their Parties.

This looks VERY good, Al.  And so simple it's almost scary. 

You mentioned to John that he could probably use Crème de Menthe.  I poured some over some ice cream decades ago, and as usual I figured more is better.  Wrong!!!!  It was terrible.  Just a drizzle is all you need--then it's downright delicious.

for a great and simple idea.

Thanks Gary, I've never used anything but coffee liqueur, but I may try some other things in the future.

It's just so good the way it is, I'm hesitant to change it.

I've got Kahlua, but I've also got some of this wonderful stuff in the cabinet. Patron silver, coffee and dark cacao. Or would it be too much "kick"?  It's 60 proof and Kahlua is 40 proof so the Patron silver will have a little more 'umph' to it.  (Patron silver without any other flavors is 80 proof)

I think I would give it a try!

Worst case scenario is you get a buzz off dessert!

We have been making this for years & always used cheap coffee liqueur.

I use it because it has more coffee flavor than Kahlua.

I suppose you could try it with Jack too!

Al
I bet this would be good with baileys too.
I agree, I think you are right!

This was great Al! I made single serve portions in mini loaf pans because it's just me for the week.

I think I was a little heavy-handed on the booze because it had quite a kick, unless I can't hold my own anymore.
