  1. 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. Stir in the lemon juice and sugar. 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. Combine the crumbs with the melted butter and press it into the bottom of a 13x9x2 pan. Pour the gelatin mixture over the crumbs and top with shaved bits of chocolate or chocolate cookie crumbs. Chill until firm and cut into squares for serving.
