This is a perfect dessert for the Easter guests with
it’s bright color it just reminds you of spring!


1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 teas orange zest
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tbls butter
12 oz white chocolate, shaved
1 teas vanilla
2 teas orange zest
3 pints orange sherbert, divided
2 pints vanilla ice cream


Butter the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Combine the crumbs and the 1 teaspoon orange zest; stir in the melted butter. Press mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan and bake in a 325 degree oven for 6 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Place the cream and 3 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan and heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in the white chocolate. Let sit for 1 minute and stir. If chocolate is not completely melted, return to a low heat on the stove and stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and 2 teaspoons orange zest. Cool to room temperature. To put this cake together, spread half of the orange sherbert evenly over the crust and gently spread 1/2 cup of the sauce over it. Follow with the vanilla ice cream and top with another 1/2 cup of the sauce. Finally, spread the remaining sherbert over the top. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours if not overnight. Cover and refrigerate any remaining sauce to serve with the cake. To cut cake, remember to wipe your knife with a damp cloth after each slice. Serve with warmed sauce and enjoy!
To soften sherbert and ice cream so you can spread it, place in the frig for 10-20 minutes. Do not let it melt!

    Husband decided French vanilla ice cream for this one! I too have a lot of Easter memories. My mom used to take construction paper and cut out pieces to dress up fruit in different characters for the grandkids to give them something other than a chocolate bunny, which they also got! Hope ya’ll have a great Easter, our thoughts will be with you, thanks for the comment, Regina…….
