Even though we celebrate kids learning to eat healthy foods on this blog, every now and again, it's okay to savor a sweet treat. An OREO cookie crumbled over mint chip ice cream is one of my most favorite sweet treats.
Growing up in my house, you would often find them in a small cookie jar on the counter, frozen in the freezer or crushed over mint chip ice cream.
Recently I asked a friend how she grew up eating OREO cookies. She said she removes one side, licks off the yummy center and then dunks the two cookie ends in milk. My mom used to make this special OREO cookie crumble dessert when I was younger.
It's simply OREO Cookies crumbled, layered with softened mint chip ice cream and chocolate sauce and topped with whipped cream and more OREO crumbles. She put them in single serving plastic tumbler cups and refroze them until it was time for dessert.
That dessert and crumbled OREO cookies will always remind me of my mom and my childhood home...
