Easy Peppermint Ice Cream Pie

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

Just a quick pie I threw together in an attempt to recreate a "cake" served at the holidays by our local sports bar. One of my daughter's FAVORITES!! "Cook" time is freezer time (although just suggested, I made mine and froze overnight). **Update: As suggested by a reviewer - this really CAN be modified with your favorite flavor ice cream and garnished accordingly to suit the Holiday or event. ;)

I love this ice cream pie! So festive and delicious. I have also used peppermint chocolate chip ice cream for the contrast of the green color at Christmas or St Patrick's Day! Happy holidays!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Soften ice cream on counter until "workable" (soft enough to stir in Cool Whip but not too liquid).
  2. Mix in full tub of Cool Whip- do not over blend as Cool Whip will become runny.
  3. Scoop half of mixture into each of 2 pie crusts.
  4. Smooth evenly in crust.
  5. Cover with lid, if available, or wrap.
  6. Place in freezer for at least 2 hours. (Could be less, I don't know as I always do ahead and leave them overnight).
  7. Prior to serving, remove cover and smooth any voids (a slightly warm spoon run under warm water works well).
  8. Garnish with crushed candy cane or starlight mints, chocolate curls, peppermint bark crumbles, or crushed Candy Cane Roca - my favorite.
  9. Enjoy! ;).
