This jello is another in the series of ice cream flavored treats. This one was made for Sarah‘s BBQ and housewarming party for her new Brooklyn abode with a much coveted yard. Its made with vanilla bean ice cream and sweetened condensed milk. Its crowned with mini Oreo cookies and crust of crushed Oreos. A cool and creamy compliment to a very hot summer.
