  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (about 16 cookies)

MICROWAVE 1 1/4 cups morsels and 3/4 cup cream in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract. Cool to room temperature.



LINE 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with 2 overlapping sheets of plastic wrap, allowing 4-inch overhang on all sides.



COMBINE crushed cookies and butter in medium bowl. Press onto bottom of prepared loaf pan.



BEAT 3/4 cup cream and powdered sugar in small chilled mixer bowl until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture until blended. Spoon half of chocolate mousse (about 1 1/2 cups) over cookie layer; smooth top. Freeze for 2 hours or until very firm. Cover and refrigerate remaining chocolate mousse.



SPOON sherbet over frozen chocolate layer; smooth top. Freeze for 2 hours or until very firm.



SPOON remaining chocolate mousse over sherbet layer; smooth top. Freeze for 2 hours or until very firm.



MICROWAVE remaining 1/2 cup morsels and remaining 1/4 cup cream in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes. Spread evenly over mousse layer. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.



NOTE: Full freezing time is necessary. Each layer must be frozen solid before topped with the next layer for a clean result.



TIPS:

• May be layered with other flavors of sherbet or ice cream.


• To cut slices more easily, run hot water over knife blade and dry prior to cutting.

Delicious

While I was a little hesitant about this recipe, I found that it was both yummy and fulfilling. Scrumptious does not even begin to describe it.

Chocolate Citrus Freeze

This recipe was easy, although it took awhile to make, but the results were well worth it. I made it for my Bunco Club and everyone said it was the most refreshing dessert ever! Will make again!
