We really enjoyed this light and fresh-tasting dessert. Freezing it 3 hours, as directed, allowed me to cut it into very neat slices, which I liked. We also thought you could make this dessert in a store-bought Oreo Pie Crust for a super-fast preparation.
We loved this frozen dessert - very refreshing on a hot day. I made this into individual dessert servings, pressing the oreo crust into the bottom of the dessert cups and then sprinkling a few crumbs on top - I got 8 dessert cups. This is great for those summertime picnics and bbqs. I'll make this again since it's so easy. Thanks for posting - made for Spring PAC 2012.
