For those of you who prefer “blondes” . . . here’s a caramel version of mud pie. It is equally as good. It’s rich. It’s messy. It’s amazing. The only drawback to this version is the caramel layer likes to run away, so be prepared for a “mud slide.” There’s never been a more delicious natural disaster.
1 pkg. golden Oreos
1 cube butter or margarine
4 pints dulce de leche ice cream
1 jar Mrs. Richardson’s butterscotch/caramel topping
1 small container cool whip, thawed
Crush Oreos in Ziploc bag using rolling pin. Melt butter and stir in crushed Oreos. Reserve 1/2 cup Oreo mixture for later. Press remaining Oreo mixture into bottom of 8 x 12 container. Freeze 20 minutes. Scoop ice cream onto Oreo crust and smooth to form ice cream layer. Freeze 20 minutes. Pour butterscotch/caramel topping over ice cream. Freeze 20 minutes. Spread cool whip over topping. Sprinkle remaining Oreo crumbs on cool whip and freeze several hours or until firm.
