Chocolate Freezer Pie

 Summer is coming...

At least I hope it is. Right now I'm sitting inside under a big blanket as a Nor'easter dumps a ridiculous amount of rain on New Jersey. Spring so far has been cold and wet.

I'm ready to wear sun dresses and sandals, grill out on the patio and eat lots of ice cream!

The weather forecast for next week is looking up and I'm hoping that means I can break out the chiffon dresses and ice cream maker! Not at the same time, but maybe! We'll see where the summer takes us!

To get ready for the warmer weather, I'm putting together some fun ice cream recipes. This Chocolate freezer pie was incredibly easy to put together but it totally impressive to look at! Plus, you get ice cream sandwiches in each slice!

I made my crust out of Cool Mint and Sweet Cream ice cream sandwiches. It was a nice way to use up a box of ice cream sandwiches, because otherwise I would definitely eat the entire box myself. You should definitely give this pie crust a try! To be completely honest, I saw it on Facebook and thought it was a great idea. Admire and acquire!

Chocolate Freezer Cake
A Wilde Original

For Crust
18 Oreo cookies, crushed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 mint ice cream sandwiches, cut into quarters
4 sweet cream ice cream sandwiches, cut into quarters

For Pie
4 ounces baking chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup milk
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup whipping cream, whipped

For Topping
1 cup whipping cream
Miniature chocolate chips

Line a 9-inch springform pan with plastic wrap.

Stir together oreo cookie crumbs and butter, press into the bottom of the pan. Form a ring of ice cream sandwiches, alternating vanilla and mint flavors, around the edge of the pan. Gently press sandwiches into cookie crust. Place in freezer to set up for 1 hour.

Melt baking chocolate over low heat (or use microwave, heating for 30 seconds at a time). In a medium bowl, combine chocolate, milk, cream cheese and sugar, beat until smooth. In a large bowl, whisk whipping cream until it fluffy and holds stiff peaks. Add whipped cream to medium bowl and gently fold ingredients together until cream is incorporated in chocolate mixture. Pour into the center of the crust and place back in the freezer for 4 hours.

Whip second cup of whipped cream until fluffy.  Take pie out of the freezer and unwrap from springform pan and plastic wrap. Top with whipped cream and chocolate chips. Cut slices to give everyone a vanilla and mint ice cream sandwich!
