~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Frosty Orange Dream Squares
40 Nilla wafers, crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups cold milk
2 pkg vanilla instant pudding (the 4 servings box)
one 8 oz. tub Cool Whip
2 cups orange sherbet, softened
Line 9" x 13" pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. (Sheila's helpful tip: make room for the pan in your freezer, clearning a level shelf and putting the pan inside to verify that it fits) Mix wafers and butter. Press into bottom of pan. Mix milk and pudding with a wire whisk until smooth. Add half of the cool whip and whisk until smooth. Spoon over crust and smooth. Put in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Mix sherbet and the rest of the cool whip until smooth. Spoon over pudding layer and cover. Freeze three hours or overnight. Use foil to remove the entire thing from pan and cut into squares. Makes 24 servings.
Sally and I got to thinking that this recipe would be good with different flavors. Today I made another batch, using chocolate pudding, vanilla ice cream, and then I had some leftover chocolate frosting (don't ask) that I heated up and drizzled on the top. Pretty, and pretty tasty, too.
