    2. COMBINE the chocolate chips, 2 cups of the marshmallows and the milk in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH for 4 minutes or until completely melted, stirring once.

    3. COOL for 10 minutes, then stir in the remaining 2 cups marshmallows. Spread over the crust; freeze for 1 hour or until firm.

    4. TOP the chocolate layer with the crumbled graham crackers.

    5. CUT the carton from the ice cream with scissors. Place the rectangle on its side, then cut crosswise into 4 slices. Arrange the slices in baking dish, pressing to form an even layer. Cover and freeze 4 hours or overnight.

    6. FROST with the whipped cream or whipped topping just before serving. Garnish as desired. Cut into rectangular slices with a knife dipped in hot water.
