Mud Pie


Some things just go well together. Like knickers and argyle socks . . . 80’s power ballads and big hair . . . purple eye shadow and a bi-level haircut. (Can you guess which era I grew up in?) Ok, maybe not the best way to sell you on this recipe, but seriously, this mud pie is definitely an example of things coming together beautifully . . . ingredients meant to be together, made for each other if you will. My mom made this dessert for my high school graduation celebration dinner, and I will never forget staying up all night to celebrate, lip synching to the Beach Boys, strumming my badminton racquet (guitar), and then having another piece of mud pie for breakfast before going to bed. Ahhhh, good times. I hope this mud pie becomes part of some good memories for you too. It’s wicked awesome!!


1 pkg. regular Oreos

1 cube butter or margarine

1/2 gallon cookies-n-cream ice cream

1 jar Mrs. Richardson’s hot fudge topping

1 small container cool whip, thawed


Crush Oreos in Ziploc bag using rolling pin. Melt butter and stir in crushed Oreos. Reserve 1/2 cup Oreo mixture for later. Press remaining Oreo mixture into bottom of 8 x 12 container. Freeze 20 minutes. Scoop ice cream onto Oreo crust and smooth to form ice cream layer. Freeze 20 minutes. Pour hot fudge topping over ice cream. Freeze 20 minutes. Spread cool whip over topping. Sprinkle remaining Oreo crumbs on cool whip and freeze several hours or until firm.

    Every year we got to pick our birthday dessert and every year I picked mud pie, now my son picks it for his. My favorite version is with mint cookies and cream ice cream. Seriously so good.
