This Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pie is easy to put together and so delicious!! It's made with a mint Oreo pie crust, mint ice cream, mint whipped cream, and chocolate syrup. This dessert is perfect for a summer party, St. Patrick's Day, or just a weekday dessert! It only takes about 25 minutes to put together, but plan for a freeze overnight. My mom used to make a similar Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pie when I was a kid. Also called Grasshopper Pie, there are many versions and variations out there. I tried to get as close to my Mom’s as I could. One ingredient that wasn’t around when I was younger is the Mint Oreos which make the crust even better than I remember!

Recipe details

  • 8  slices
  • Prep time: 25 Minutes Cook time: 0 Minutes Total time: 25 min

Ingredients

Mint Oreo Crust

  • 25 mint Oreo cookies
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted

Ice Cream and Chocolate Syrup Layers

  • 36 oz green mint ice cream (basically ¾ of a 1.5 gallon tub)
  • ½ cup chocolate syrup

Mint Whipped Cream Layer

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup confectioners powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract (or creme de menthe extract)

Chocolate Shavings

  • dark chocolate shavings (or mini semi-sweet chocolare chips)

Instructions

Mint Oreo Crust

Put the Oreos in a food processor and pulse into a crumble. If you don't have a food processor, you can place the cookies in a plastic bag and crush them with something heavy). Place the crumbled Oreos in a bowl.
Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and add to the cookie crumbles. Mix together with a spoon until all of the crumble has been coated with butter.
Place the mixture into the pan and press into the bottom and sides with your hands. Once you have the crust in place, cover with a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and press with a heavy glass or small bowl. This will pack the crust in so that it stays in place. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top and freeze for at least an hour.

Ice Cream and Chocolate Syrup Layers

Remove the ice cream from the freezer for 15-20 minutes to allow it to soften. Place the ice cream in a bowl and stir with a spoon to get it to be like a soft-serve consistency. This will make it easier to pack into the crust. Remove the crust from the freezer and add the ice cream. Smooth it to the edges but make sure you still have room at the top for the whipped cream layer.
Pour a thin layer of chocolate syrup on top of the ice cream and spread around to the edges. Cover with the plastic wrap and place back into the freezer for another hour.

Mint Whipped Cream Layer

Place the heavy whipping cream into a bowl and begin to whip on medium speed with a hand mixer. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and peppermint and continue to beat on high speed until the cream is nice and stiff. This will take about 4-5 minutes.
Remove the pie from the freezer and add the mint whipped cream to the top. Spread to the edges, cover, and return to the freezer for at least 12 hours, overnight is best so that everything will be nice and firm.

Chocolate Shavings

When you are ready to serve the pie, take a dark chocolate bar and shave off the side with a vegetable peeler to create chocolate shavings. Sprinkle on top of the pie and allow the pie to sit for a minute or two before slicing. TIP: use a warm knife to cut through the pie!

Tips

  • Plan ahead since you will need to freeze this pie overnight!
  • If you don’t want to make your own whipped cream, you can use frozen whipped topping like Cool Whip.
