Cooking Thursday

Before summer is completely done, I want to share one more ice cream dessert with you.  I had forgotten about this one until my daughter reminded me of it, so I thought I should make it again. When Andy was little, he called basketballs "boop balls".  This dessert is decorated with malted milk balls so he called it Boop Ball Dessert, and we still call it that.  :)
If you like chocolate malts, you'll like this one.

Malted Milk Ball Dessert
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 stick melted butter
Mix and press into a 9 x 13 pan.
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
12 ounces crushed malted milk balls
Stir together and spread over crust. Freeze.
Top with 8 ounces softened Cool Whip spread over frozen filling and freeze.
Garnish each piece with a malted milk ball prior to serving.
