  • Place a can of evaporated milk in the freezer until ice cold, approximately 1 hour.
  • Dissolve the gelatin in hot water.
  • Chill until partially set, approximately 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and whip with an electric mixer until fluffy, this usually takes 7-10 minutes to get it fluffy.

  • In a separate bowl, whip the milk for 5-7 minutes.
  • Fold it into the gelatin.
  • Between waxed paper or in a large plastic bag, crush chocolate crackers or cookies with a rolling pin until nicely crumbled. This can also be done in a food processor.

  • Chill until firm and cut into squares for serving.
