Heath Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Heath Bar Ice cream Dessert2
This recipe is a classic family favorite.  It is one of my grandma’s recipes, and I say “one of” because my grandma is a treasure trove of recipes (especially desserts!)  My cousins and I joke about how many desserts show up at family gatherings.  The conversations go something like this:

“Oh no, we only have 8 desserts today…this could be a disaster.”

“There are 24 of us here…that means we can each only have 1/3 of a dessert.”

“I want to try a little of everything.”

“I get a third of that chocolate cake”

“There’s ice cream?  Does that count as a ninth dessert?”

This is nearly always one of the desserts at our family dinners.  It’s fabulous. Creamy and light and butterscotch-y…oh my.  You’ve got to try this one out with your family!

Heath Bar Dessert!!

Ready for the recipe?  Here you go: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1 package (10 oz) Lorna Doone cookies, crushed (if you can’t get these specific cookies, use 2 cups of another brand of shortbread cookies)
  • 3 packages (3.4 oz) INSTANT vanilla pudding
  • 2 and 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 quart of butter pecan ice cream (softened)
  • 1 (8oz). Cool Whip
  • One bag of Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits (or several crushed Heath bars)

DIRECTIONS:

Crust:

  • Combine  melted butter with crushed shortbread cookies and press into a 9″ by 13″ cake pan (I use glass)

Filling:

  • In a large bowl, combine milk and pudding and beat on high for about two minutes, until pudding becomes thick.
  • Add softened ice cream to pudding and stir by hand until well combined.
  • Pour over crust in pan.

Topping: 

  • Spread Cool Whip topping over the entire dessert.
  • Top this with desired amount of Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits (I used the whole bag!!)
  • Cover dessert tightly with plastic wrap and freeze until serving.  Allow dessert to warm for several hours before serving.
  • Enjoy!
