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


  • 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.
  2. Spoon 2 cups ice cream into crust. Drizzle with half of the chocolate syrup; swirl with a knife. Gently top with remaining ice cream. Drizzle with remaining syrup; swirl with a knife. Freeze until firm.
  3. Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving. If desired, top with whole cookies.
