Make it even more indulgent by overloading each slice with crushed Oreos and ribbons of chocolate sauce on top. (And chocolate sandwich cookies with mint filling would take this all the way.)

Mint Chip Ice Cream Pie

Makes 8 – 10 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 3 cups crisped rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
  • 2 pints mint chip ice cream, slightly softened
  • chocolate sauce or hot fudge sauce (optional decoration)
  • crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos — optional decoration)

Direction

  1. In a large bowl, stir the melted chocolate chips with the crisped rice cereal until the cereal is completely coated in chocolate. Use a rubber spatula to press the mixture into an even layer on the bottom of a 9-inch round springform pan, and up the sides of the pan about an inch to create a crust.
  2. Freeze until firm, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Spread the softened mint chip ice cream into the prepared crust. Cover and freeze it for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
  4. Remove the pie from the pan and cut it into slices. If desired, serve it with chocolate sauce or hot fudge drizzled on top and decorate it with crushed chocolate sandwich cookies.
