flowing through our land.
The mighty Mississippi River
is awesome, strong, and grand.”
It’s been months since the girls studied Mississippi (sometime last fall) but I am just now getting around to adding it here. Anyhow, for the state of Mississippi, the 20th State to join the Union, the girls read M is for Magnolia: A Mississippi Alphabet and then completed their Notebook Pages.
- 1 quart coffee ice cream (we used Almond Mocha Fudge)
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafers (we used chocolate graham crackers)
- 1 1/2 cups fudge sauce, refrigerated
Let the coffee ice cream soften at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Melt the butter over low heat.
Let the butter cool for a minute, while you crush the wafers (graham crackers).
Pour the melted butter it into a mixing bowl and add the crushed wafers.
Press the chocolate wafer mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a pie plate.
Fill the pie shell with the softened ice cream.
Smooth the top of the ice cream evenly with a knife or a spatula.
Put the pie into the freezer until the ice cream is firm, about 20 minutes.
Top with the fudge sauce…
…and spread with a spatula.
Slice and serve.
