Grasshopper Dessert Squares

This is a refreshing, not too sweet dessert that i made this week. It's pretty simple too, nothing fancy, but good. Try it if you like minty desserts. Grasshopper Dessert Squares (Pampered Chef "Desserts" cookbook) :
21 fudge mint cookies (1 1/4 c. finely chopped)
1 T butter, melted
1 quart Vanilla ice cream
2 cups cool whip
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
4 drops green food coloring

Preheat oven to 350. Finely chop cookies, mix with the melted butter and press crumb mixture onto bottom of square baking dish. bake 8 minutes. Cool completely.

Place ice cream in fridge for 20 minutes to soften. Scoop ice cream into mixing bowl, stir until softened and blended. Gently fold in 2 cups cool whip, peppermint extract, and food coloring. Spread ice cream mixture evenly over crust. Cover with foil; freeze several hours.

Before serving you can add extra cool whip to the top. Enjoy!
