I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream Pie! And, this ice cream pie is so simple (and so absurdly scrumptious) that you won’t be able to contain yourself.

It seems everyone nowadays needs you to bring some dessert or side dish to their potluck or picnic.

It’s easy to lose your inspiration and stick to the blah-blah basics, toting along strawberry shortcake (boring) or S’mores (booooring!). So, why not put a little zing into your party plans by serving up this simple, no-bake freezer cake which is as easy to make as it is totally crave worthy? You’re going to love every bite of it!

Mint

Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie
Makes about 12 servings

Ingredients:
20 oreos, pulverized in a food processor
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 gallon mint chocolate chip ice cream
4 ounces whipped cream
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 cups heavy cream

Directions:
1. Coat a springform pan with a light layer of nonstick cooking spray.

2. In your springform pan, mix together the Oreo crumbs and butter until well coated. Press into the bottom of the pan. Allow the ice cream to melt until it’s a pliable consistency, then spread it over the top of the Oreo crumb layer. Smooth a layer of whipped cream over the ice cream, then return to your freezer until it’s fully frozen, about 2 hours.

3. In a small bowl, heat together the chocolate chips and heavy cream. Stir until a creamy ganache results. Smooth over the frozen whipped cream. Return to the freezer and allow the ganache to harden completely before serving.

4. To serve, run a bit of warm water carefully over the sides of the springform pan. Pop off the sides of the pan, then allow the cake to sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes before slicing into it with a very sharp knife.
