Mint Ice Cream Dessert
Eric has made this dessert for my birthday the past three years, and before that my mom made it for me for many years. It is a birthday tradition that means a lot to me and I'm so glad it is continuing into my adulthood. It has to be done in a few different steps, so it typically takes us at least two nights to make it. Knowing that makes me feel extra special when someone puts in all that time just for me. So add this to your Pinterest food board because you gotta try it!
(Please know that just because I am writing this post does not mean I did any of the work. I did take a few photos, but Eric was the one who made it.)

(Can you tell we didn't let the fudge cool long enough before pouring it on?)
