Mocha Mud Pie: Celebrate National Ice Cream Pie Day (Giveaway!)

It is National Ice Cream Pie Day and I am celebrating with Ginny's! It was pretty easy for me to decide to join in the celebration. Every year someone requests an ice cream pie for their birthday! My Mocha Mud Pie is among the most requested! This delicious ice cream pie is rich and creamy with a crunchy chocolate cookie crust. Drizzle it with hot fudge and it is pretty much perfection! This summer we were traveling for the kids birthdays, and so (gasp!) I did not make my Mocha Mud Pie...but now we have the perfect reason to make this pie and celebrate summer and National Ice Cream Pie day!! (Hint, Hint: Be sure to read to the bottom...thanks to Ginny's there are two chances for you to enter to win some pretty amazing gift cards during this celebration!)

It is almost impossible to eat just one slice of this delicous Mocha Mud Pie.

This pie is pretty easy to make - easy enough that you could whip it up and be able to enjoy if for dessert tonight. Of course you can make your own ice cream, but for this version we are sticking to store bought ice cream. 

Hot fudge is the icing on the pie!

NOTE: You have to work quick if you live in a hot area - it is ice cream, after all! Be prepared, have your ingredients ready and your work surface prepped. If I can make this pie in the heat of a Texas summer, you can manage it too!
 
Ingredients
  • 1.5 Quarts Coffee ice cream
  • 1 Pint chocolate ice cream
  • 1 Package Oreo Cookies (with the creme scraped out) NOTE: You can use Chocolate Wafer Cookies - I just have a hard time finding them where I live. Reserve about 6 (3 for the center garnish and/or for crushing for a topping)
  • 5 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (or less..or more!) Hot Fudge Sauce 
  • 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds
  • Optional for decorating, mini Oreos, crushed Oreos.
Ice cream is the star of the Mocha Mud #Pie, but dont forget the cookies, almonds, and hot fudge.

THE COOKIE CRUST
  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Scrape/Remove the creme filling from the Oreos using a butter knife.
  • Place cookies in a food processor and process until they are fine crumbs, resembling coffee grounds.
  • Melt butter in the microwave (in a microwave safe dish)
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cookie crumbs and butter together and mix thoroughly.
  • Place the cookie crumb mixture into the pan and press down and onto the side of the pan to create a crust. I use a small glass bowl to press the crumbs down and up onto the sides firmly.
  • Bake for 10 minutes in the 350F oven.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely
I can almost taste the crunchy chocolate goodness of the crust.

THE FILLING
Once the pie crust is cooled...
  • Let coffee and chocolate ice cream soften.
  • Individually, stir the ice cream into a creamy texture.
  • Add the creamed chocolate to the coffee ice cream and thoroughly combine.
Time for the ingredients to meet up.

ASSEMBLE IT
  • Put the creamed ice cream mixture into the cooled pie crust and smooth out with a spatula.
This ice cream pie already looks good!

  • Option #1
    • Place mini Oreos around the outside edges on the pie tin.
    • Sprinkle toasted almonds all over the top of the pie.
    • Heat 1/4 cup+ of the hot fudge and drizzle it all over the pie. I use a spoon and go back and forth horizontally, then turn the pie tine and do it criss-crossing the other drizzles.
    • (NOTE: You can wait to add the hot fudge until you serve it...or add even more when yo serve it.)
    • Place the completed pie back into the freezer to firm up. It needs at least 4 hours (Overnight is best).
Place mini Oreos aroudn the edges of the pie.

  • Option #2
    • Crush cookie and sprinkle all over the pie.
    • Sprinkle Toasted almonds all over the pie.
    • Heat 1/4 cup+ of the hot fudge and drizzle it all over the pie. I use a spoon and go back and forth horizontally, then turn the pie tine and do it criss-crossing the other drizzle.
    • (NOTE: You can wait to add the hot fudge until you serve it...or add even more when yo serve it.)
    • Place the completed pie back into the freezer to firm up. It needs at least 4 hours (Overnight is best).
    • Place the completed pie back into the freezer to firm up. It needs at least 4 hours (Overnight is best).
The pie is ready!
