Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style - Pistachio Dessert

My cousin Heidi introduced us to this dessert at a recent wedding shower, and it will immediately become a part of every holiday gathering. It's so scrumptious!

Pistachio Frozen Dessert

2 tbs butter
¾ cup cracker crumbs
¾ cup cold milk
1 package instant pistachio pudding (3.4 oz)
2 cups vanilla ice cream softened

In a microwave safe dish, melt butter. Still in cracker crumbs, press mixture into bottom of dish. In a bowl, mix milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Whisk in ice cream. Pour over crust. Cover and freeze for 2 hours or more. Spread w/whipped topping, sprinkle w/ crushed candy bars. Freeze for 1 hr or until firm. Yield’s 8 servings.
