I’m always looking for a little green to make around St. Patrick’s Day…and since mint chocolate is one of my very favorite flavor combinations, I use it a lot.
I made this pie for Andrea and her family and between our two families, we took it down. Creamy, cool, a little minty and in an Oreo crust…I bet even the Irish would like this pie.
This recipe makes two (9 inch) pies. You can cut the recipe in half to only make one.
2 pre-made Oreo pie crusts (found on the baking aisle by the graham cracker crusts)
1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip, from the fridge not frozen
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (1/2 gallon) container of mint chocolate ice cream, softened just a bit
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Cool Whip and cream cheese with an electric mixer. Do not over mix, just combine. Add your ice cream to the mixture and combine with a spoon (not the electric mixer). Once incorporated, divide the mixture between your two pie shells.
Cover and freeze at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
If you’re looking for a little green in your life (or just a little goodness), this pie is the key.
