Dessert recipes: Frozen Mud Pie is easy to make

Here's one of those "looks like you fussed" desserts that is so easy it's become a standard for me. I love the mocha version, but pure chocolate lovers may prefer using a chocolate chip ice cream.


1½ cups crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (about 15)

1½ teaspoons sugar, optional

¼ cup butter or margarine, melted

2 pints chocolate chip or coffee ice cream, softened

¼ cup chocolate syrup

Additional cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, optional


1. In a bowl, combine cookie crumbs and sugar if desired. Stir in butter.

2. Press cookie mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of an un-greased 9-inch pie plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Spoon 1 pint of ice cream into crust. Drizzle with half of the chocolate syrup; swirl with a knife.

4. Carefully top first layer with the remaining ice cream. Drizzle with remaining syrup; swirl with a knife.

5. Cover and freeze until firm.

6. Remove from the freezer 10–15 minutes before serving. Garnish with whole cookies if desired.
