Frozen Mud Pie Recipe

Here's one of those "looks like you fussed" desserts that is so easy it's become a standard for me. I love the mocha version, but pure chocolate lovers may prefer using chocolate chip ice cream. The cookie crust is a snap to make. —Debbie Terenzini-Wilkerson, Lusby, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + freezing YIELD:8 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar, optional
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 cups chocolate chip or coffee ice cream, softened
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • Additional Oreo cookies, optional


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and sugar if desired. Stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
