Chocolate Mint Frozen Layer Cake
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: None but freeze for 4 hours
YUM!We used two kinds of low fat frozen mint yogurt and ice cream for this, but you can use any of your favorites.
20 cookies, chocolate sandwich such as Oreo
2 tablespoons butter
6 cups frozen yogurt, green mint flavor, lowfat
3 cups frozen yogurt, chocolate flavored , low fat
1 cup whipped cream, light
Place an 18 inch long piece of wax paper in the bottom of a freezer safe loaf pan and arrange the paper up and over the sides (this will allow you to remove the frozen cake from the pan for serving). Place cookies in a large zip lock bag and crush using a meat mallet or a rolling pin. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe bowl for about 45 seconds until melted. Reserve one half of the cookie crumbs for layering and topping. Combine remaining cookie crumbs with butter and mix well. Pour the mixture into the bottom of the loaf pan and press evenly to coat the bottom. Place in the freezer to harden for about 10 minutes while you soften the frozen yogurt or ice cream slightly to make it easier to form the layers. Spoon one flavor over the cookie crust, press down with a spatula to make an even layer. Sprinkle with one third of the remaining cookie crumbs. Add another layer/flavor of ice cream or frozen yogurt and repeat. Top final layer/flavor with cookie crumbs. Cover with foil and freeze for 3 to 4 hours before cutting. Remove cake from the freezer and let it sit for about 2 minutes before removing it from the pan. Holding both ends of the wax paper, pull the cake from the pan. Using a large knife, slice into1 inch thick slices, top with whipped cream and serve.
