Mud Pie is always a favorite, for kids and adults. Although mud pie is traditionally made with coffee ice cream, La Casa de Sweets prefers the cookies and cream version. Try this for a great twist on an American classic!
Ice Cream Layer
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 10 Oreos, crushed
- 2 pints cookies and cream ice cream, left out of the freezer for 30 minutes
- 1/2 jar of hot fudge, at room temperature
- 3 Oreos, coarsely chopped
In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, microwave the butter until melted. Add the crushed Oreos, and mix until combined.
Pour the Oreo mix into a pie dish, flattening it down with a spoon. Scoop in the ice cream and flatten it down on top of the Oreo crust.
Freeze for at least 2 hours.
After the 2 hours, remove the pie from the freezer. Pour the hot fudge on top of the ice cream layer. Using the back of a spoon, smooth down the fudge layer, making sure it covers the ice cream layer completely. Sprinkle on the chopped Oreos.
Return to the freezer for at least 2 more hours before enjoying.
Makes 1 Mud Pie.
