Mint Chip Ice Cream Pie

Hands-on Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 2 hours, 25 minutes Serves: 8

Super Easy- Super Fun- Super Tasty

We tried this recipe out with guests one evening and it was a hit! So if you need an easy to make dessert that transports with no fuss and will bring a smile to your recepients- try this! Make it in the morning (or atleast 2 hours ahead) and grab it right before you head out the door to complete your meal. Or maybe you are just bringing something sweet over to brighten up their day- this would be great to drop off or to bring and visit for a bit since there is enough to feed everyone.

  • 8 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate, melted (AKA chocolate chips in my translation)
  • 4 cups crisped rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
  • 2 pints (just 1 regular size container) of mint chip ice cream, slightly softened
my additions:)
  • chopped Andes mint chocolate pieces (enough to sprinkle over the top)
  • Hot fudge or chocolate syrup for topping
If you want to use other ice cream I don't see why you couldn't and just change the toppings to fit.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the chocolate and cereal until the cereal is completely coated. Transfer to a 9 inch springform pan. Press the mixture into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of the pan. Freeze just until firm (not long).
2. Spread the softened ice cream in the prepared crust.

3. Add warmed fudge (just so easy to pour) or topping of your choice

4. Add crushed/chopped Andes Mint, cover, and freeze until firm, for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
