    This is one of our favorite dessert recipes. It can be made ahead and keeps a long time in the freezer. If you like pistachio, you should try this! Cook time is for freezing.

      I'm basing my 5 stars on the ease of this recipe & how much of a hit it was... even though I had to make a couple of major changes. Because I didn't want to hit a second grocery store, I had to use vanilla ice-cream in place of the frozen yogurt & chocolate pudding in place of the pistachio pudding. Very refreshing & light tasting (even with the ice-cream) and quite fancy looking.
      Edited 08/29/10: I tried this recipe again using all the proper ingredients & served at a family bbq. It looked so pretty with the pistachio pudding & everyone was gushing about it! Definitely a go-to recipe!!

      This was delicious - and very easy. My husband remembers his pistachio concretes from Ted Drewes in St. Louis and has never been able to find anything else to replace it. This made him happy!
