I discovered this recipe today on pinterest, and can't wait to make it for a Christmas dinner party we are having! It sounds absolutely delicious!
Mint ice cream and colorful sprinkles make this cool concoction perfect for holiday parties or meals. For a chocolaty dessert, use rocky road or chocolate ice cream instead.
