In honor of St. Patty’s day and my love for all things Chocolate and Peppermint, today I give you Peppermint Ice Cream Pie. This is actually a recipe that I made as a dessert to pass on Christmas Eve (as if we needed more desserts on that already full table!). It was extremely well received and with good reason.

First of all, what’s not to love about the chocolate/peppermint combo? I mean, come on. Heaven. You’ve got the greatness-that-is an Oreo Cookie Crust. What a perfect way to anchor any dessert! And of course mint chocolate chip ice cream, a personal favorite! Top it off with some freshly whipped cream (or store bought to make life easier) and some swirls of chocolate sauce or mini chocolate chips and you’ve got yourself a pretty fantastic dessert.

In addition to fantastic flavor, the other clincher on this recipe is how quick and easy it is to make. Seriously you guys, a few simple ingredients and 10-15 minutes of minimal “work” on your part and then you pop that puppy in the freezer until it’s time to dig in! I was even able to make the Christmas version of this gluten-free by using this recipe to make the crust with gluten-free Oreos! But I’m also not above pre-made pie crusts and whipped cream, because lazy.

Either way, make this recipe and revel in how delicious it is. Yes, you will be the most popular guy or gal at the dessert table. And yes, you may or may not make another one after the event to keep in your freezer and dig into whenever the craving strikes (who, me? Never….).

Ingredients

  • An Oreo cookie crust (I buy the pre-made so I don't have to bake it, but homemade is also great- I like this recipe)
  • A standard 48 oz. box of mint chocolate chip ice cream (The recipe uses about half of the box, give or take)
  • Whipped cream (if you're whipping it yourself, you can use 1/2 pt. of heavy cream, 1 tsp. of vanilla extract and 1/4 cup of confectioner's sugar whipped until you get some nice peaks)
  • Chocolate sauce or mini chocolate chips for garnish (or both if you like to live dangerously)

Instructions

  1. Pull your ice cream out of the freezer for a couple minutes to soften it (if the box has already been opened, but may take a minute or two longer to soften than an unopened box).
  2. Carefully scoop the ice cream into the pie crust, leaving a small amount of space on top for the layer of whipped cream. Using a spatula, smooth it out a bit on top so that it's level.
  3. Next, scoop your whipped cream on top of the pie, once again smoothing and leveling carefully with a spatula.
  4. If you're planning on garnishing with chocolate sauce and/or mini chocolate chips, now would be a good time to do that.
  5. Place the pie in the freezer to harden uncovered. After an hour, I wrapped it. Let it freeze for a couple of hours or longer.
  6. Enjoy!
