This recipe is one of Dayle's personal favorites!
I made this for Christmas '96. I used ice milk 2 lts. (2 qt.) and divided it in half. Colored half pink. Put the pink half on the chocolate crust. Melted 2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate and drizzled this over the pink layer. Next put on the remainder of the ice milk and returned to freezer. Instead of the marshmallow cream I use 24 jumbo marshmallows. In place of the whipping cream I used frozen Rich Topping, thawed. Tasted great. The fat content was reduced a bit and nobody would have known! An excellent presentation for Christmas, with a layer of chocolate, pink, white and then green. Served at least 12.
If using a springform pan, cut out a circle of waxed paper for the bottom of the pan before you put in the crust. So much easier to get out of the pan later!
This can be made ahead and frozen, wonderful
