My dad makes a mean “GED.” It’s one of my faves and it remains a family favorite. He’s made it so many times, he’s able to whip it up by memory, and it’s always a success. The hardest part is waiting for the dessert to chill and set before digging in to the pistachio goodness. Mmmmm. Delish. I hope you enjoy this as much as me and my family do.
Dad’s Green Exotic Dessert – GED
Take out 3/4 of a 1/2 gallon box of vanilla ice cream to start to soften.
1st layer: Melt 1 stick of butter or margarine . Crush 45 Ritz crackers with a rolling pin on top of wax paper and mix with the butter. Smash that all to the bottom of a 9×13 in pan and flatten out hard with spatula then put the pan in the freezer while preparing the 2nd layer.
3 packages of pistachio pudding (3 1/2 oz pkg)
3 cups of 2% or whole milk
Mix until well blended. Then add softened ice cream by blending it in with an electric hand held beater. Pour that on top of the first layer and refrigerate.
3rd layer: Any type of cool whip or real whipped cream – spread out as thick as you want.
4th layer: Crush up 4 heath candy bars or skor bars. Use a sharp knife to shave off the candy bars into flakes or cut into chips. Either sprinkle on top of entire dessert or reserve and top each individual piece with crushed candy.
Keep refrigerated, not in freezer.
Dig in and enjoy!
