A frozen treat seemed like a winner. It is individually wrapped for convenience--a must around here. It lasts for quite a while in the freezer--at least as long as no one knows it is there. Summer is coming and I need new cold things to help me enjoy the outside heat--we can now laugh about the 4 days of no power and sub-zero weather.
Step 1: Ingredients:
Milk--or whatever your mix calls for
Baking pan or plate to freeze in/on
You could probably substitute chocolate mousse for the cheesecake. (That is what I plan to try next.)
Step 2: Preparing the Filling
Line the bottom of your pan with a single layer of Graham crackers.
Step 3: Filling the Crackers
I lined a 13 by 9 pan with graham crackers. Spread my filling. Then topped it with another layer of crackers. Line up the top crackers with where you put the bottom layer.
The filling is on the soft side, so it needs to freeze before wrapping. A couple of hours is enough--it doesn't need to be totally solid.
Step 4: Wrapping
I cut the sandwiches apart between the crackers. After I wrapped each in a piece of foil and I returned them to the freezer.
I tried one that day and one the next day--to test the texture of the graham crackers. They were perfect by the next day--soft enough to not crumble when you bite into them. Serve frozen. Perfect after school snack for a warm day.
