I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Ice Cream Sundae Dessert

This is my "Adopted" daughter's favorite recipe.   Technically I she's really not adopted, she is just been a part of our family for to many years to count.   We love her like she's ours.   Simple to make and very good.

(serves 12)

*1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
*3 tablespoons sugar
*1/3 cup melted butter
*1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
*1 cup peanuts
*1/2 cup butter
*1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
*2 cups powdered sugar
*1/4 cup light corn syrup
*1 cup evaporated milk
*1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

~Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
~Mix in a medium bowl, graham cracker crumbs, sugar & melted butter.
~Pat into a 9x13 inch pan.
~Bake for 8 minutes.
~Cool crust completely.
~Once crust is cooled, spread 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream over it.
~Sprinkle peanuts over ice cream.
~Cover & freeze for 4 hours.
~In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt butter & chocolate chips.
~Once melted, add sugar, corn syrup & milk.
~Cook until smooth and a low boil.
~Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
~Place saucepan in a large bowl with ice.
~Occasionally stir frosting to cool it down.   Frosting will thicken up some as it cools.
~Once it is completely cooled, pour over ice cream & peanuts.
~Return to freezer for another 1-2 hours.
