Cool and refreshing is the idea with this dessert. I have made several new pies over the last few weeks as my sweet husband does not like cake very much. This is a 'Grasshopper' Pie. The last frozen pie was quite hard to cut and serve so this time around I just used my spingform pan that I normally use for cheesecake. It was so much easier this time. One of those voila' moments.
4 FAMOUS Chocolate Wafers, divided, CRUSH 2 wafers; sprinkle onto bottom of 9-inch pie plate sprayed with cooking spray.
1 pkg. (1 oz.) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Fat Free Sugar Free Instant Pudding
1-1/2 cups cold fat-free milk
1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Sugar Free Whipped Topping
1 square BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped make it.
BEAT pudding mix, milk and extract with whisk 2 min. Stir in COOL WHIP and chopped chocolate; spread onto bottom of pie plate. Top with remaining wafers, cut into quarters. FREEZE 6 hours or until firm. Remove pie from freezer 10 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly before cutting to serve.

Of course he wanted a little Harry Potter for this years birthday! The banner is old book pages, Volume 5, with brown paper backing and painted letters to spell out his name. I strung the whole thing up on some long heavy cording and hung it from the beam in the center of the room. His gifts were then wrapped in the remainder of the book pages.
This sweet little face (son #2) and his sib's all dressed up in costumes I made between last Halloween and this week as Harry Potter characters to go to the midnight premiere of the last movie! they loved it. I also made/supervised making the wands. This shirt was actually two different boys tees. One long sleeved, yellow, and the other short sleeved red. I removed both shirts' sleeves and attached the yellow to the body of the red shirt. Then I used yellow bias tape to make the stripes and printed out on muslin the Griffyndor crest. I backed that with some heatnbond and just ironed it to the shirt. Afterwards I ran an applique stitch around to secure it.
