This is my most viewed dessert on my blog. So I have updated the pictures for you. There is a homemade crust version, but who wants to spend any more time in the kitchen than is necessary on a holiday weekend. So use the purchased Oreo crust. It is just as good, but doesn’t look as pretty. It will literally take you 15 minutes to make this pie. But you have to freeze it for at least 4 hours and better if frozen 8 hours or overnight.
Also a great one to have in the freezer in case you get a craving. Serve it with homemade hot fudge. (recipe for fudge at the bottom of this post)
Gently spoon into pie crust one large scoop at a time so that you don’t break the crust. Work quickly, the ice cream will be getting very soft by now. It will mound up above the crust.
Place in the freezer for a few minutes if it is getting too melted before you frost it. Frost with the whole tub of thawed Cool Whip. Sprinkle with reserved crushed candy bar. Cover loosely with 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Freeze overnight. Serve frozen with a drizzle of purchased hot fudge or homemade.
Serves 8 to 10.
|Found these at WalMart last week. You don’t have to use them for garnish, but they sure are cute!|
Homemade Hot Fudge
12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 corn syrup
Place all in a glass bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave another 20 sec. Stir until smooth. Can easily cut this in half and you can also use Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate 4 oz. bar. It has become one of my favorites. Use about 1/3 third cup of the cream and 1 Tbs of corn syrup. (you can also use canned evaporated milk if you have it on hand. Cream is high these days.)
