Chocolate Shamrocks (see recipe below)
1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 package (3 oz) lime-flavoured gelatin
1/2 cup boiling water
1 pint vanilla or pistachio ice-cream, softened
Prepare Chocolate Shamrocks and refrigerate. Combine crumbs and softened butter. Press against bottom and sides of an 8-inch pie plate.
Empty gelatin into a bowl; add boiling water and stir to dissolve. Stir in ice-cream a few spoonfuls at a time, beating vigorously as it thickens. Pile mixture into the lined pie plate and chill until serving time. Place shamrocks on pie.
Makes 8-10 servings.
Melt 4 oz. semisweet chocolate over hot water; spread evenly on a sheet of waxed paper. Let cool until firm. Press a lightly oiled shamrock-shaped cookie cutter sharply into chocolate (or cut around a shamrock pattern). Leave shamrocks on the waxed paper and refrigerate until ready to use.
