Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie

This week has been a bit of a blur. I was up in D.C. on Wednesday night for a work event, and for some reason, that just seemed to make the rest of the week speed up. (Sitting in traffic for 3 hours on my way home didn’t help either.) Needless to say, I was pretty thrilled when Conor offered to make dinner for everyone on Thursday night. Nothing better than having someone else do the work, right? Not to mention he loaded up on vegetables for quite the delicious stir fry.

I wanted to contribute a little something, and the 95 degree weather had me craving something cool. I decided to whip up a dessert that my mom has created a bit of a tradition around. Anytime I come home for the holidays, I can usually count on this being in the freezer. It’s delicious and it’s super simple, so if you have friends coming over for the 4th of July next week, cool them off with this treat. You won’t need to spend more than 10 minutes preparing it!

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie from I Heart Vegetables

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie

  • 1/2 package of Oreos
  • 1 pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge
  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts

Set out your ice cream for about 10-15 minutes, to let it soften. Start my crushing the Oreos in a large ziplock bag. This will be your crust, so you want it pretty well crushed. Press the crumbs into the bottom of an 8×8 pan or glass dish. Scoop the ice cream over the crust, and spread it evenly. Top with melted hot fudge. Sprinkle with walnuts. Yes, it’s actually that easy. You’ll want to let it sit in the freezer for an hour or two before serving, to let the ice cream re-freeze.

How’s that for an easy dessert? I guess this is the reason my business cards say “almost-health food blogger”…

So I headed over to Conor’s house, walked up to the door, and promptly realized that I’d left dessert in the freezer. You win some you lose some, right?

Better luck next time!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

  4. I’m not a huge mint + chocolate fan – I know I’m like the only one in the world! But I could totally see using coffee ice cream and making this a mocha”ish” dessert! YUM! Great idea, Liz (and Liz’s mom)!

  6. Mint + chocolate is SUCH a good combination! This looks absolutely perfect :) My brother would loooove this (as would I ;) ).
    Chocolate and caramel would probably be my favorite ice cream flavors. Though I did love this banana pudding flavor that I used to get… it had chunks of banana and graham cracker cake or something. It was amazing.

  14. I would use normal chocolate chip ice cream for this since I just can’t do mint together with chocolate! (You’ve got to stand up for what you believe in :P )

  21. Can I simply say such a relief to discover someone who really knows exactly what theyre referring to on the internet. You certainly know how to provide an issue to be able to light and make it essential. More people need to read this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant believe you aren’t more popular as you definitely have the gift.
