I love my Easy Grasshopper Pie so much, that I decided to modify the recipe for the season and make a peppermint version! For me, peppermint ice cream is just a little too strong on it’s own but this recipe tones it down a little and the results are so yummy! You can make this recipe in a 9X13 pan, but I chose to make half of the recipe in a pie pan, and the other half in a mini cheesecake pan. You could also use make this recipe even easier and just use 2 pre-made Oreo pie crusts!
Easy Peppermint Pie
1 pkg. Oreo cookies
3 Tbsp. melted butter
8 oz container whipped topping, thawed
1/2 gallon peppermint ice cream
Crush 25 of the Oreo cookies. I used a blender, but you can place the cookies in a zip-lock bag and smash them with a hammer/mallet also. Melt the butter and combine with the Oreo crumbs. Press crumbs into the bottom of your pan to form crust. In a separate bowl, mix the ice cream with the whipped topping. I let my ice cream sit on the counter for about 20 minutes before mixing – it makes this process much easier! Scoop the mixture over the crust and freeze until ready to serve. I topped mine with some chocolate syrup and a few more crushed Oreos! Enjoy!
