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!
