Cool off with Cool Whip!

It’s been reeeeally hot outside lately, so I decided to try out a cool looking recipe that I’ve had lingering around for a while (since 2005 to be exact…man, I can’t believe it’s been that long).


Here’s the recipe:
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Ribbon Dessert

It was perfect after a long, hot day… cool & creamy and easy to eat.

Next time, I’ll layer this in foil-lined individual ramekins instead of one 9 X 5 pan though. That way I can just pop one out of the freezer as needed. The loaf pan size is pretty, but I should have served it at a dinner party or something, because I still have half of it in the freezer. I think cute layered cups of cool desert would be more fun to eat.
