Lucky Leprechaun Ice Cream Pie...

Monday, March 13, 2017
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and my kids are home for spring break.  They love to cook in the kitchen.  So, we whipped up an ice cream pie that they love to help make. 

It's never as simple as the pictures make it out to be.  Remember its kids in the kitchen, there is a fair amount of mess and chaos but as you can see by the photos, they were darn proud of their dessert.  This dessert is simple, easy and sure to please!  Add it to your spring break list and St. Patty's Day menu!  Think shamrock shake meets pie ;) #delicious.


Pin this!


Ingredients: 48 oz container mint chocolate chip ice cream, 8 oz container whipped topping, pre-made Oreo crust, green food coloring, garnish of choice (we chose crushed Andes' mints).



We placed the ice cream in the fridge to thaw for about an hour and then scooped it into the Oreo crust.  Solon also pretended to eat that huge hunk....hence the BIG smile ;).



Then it was the girls' turn.  Lucy was a little upset there was no taste testing #scowl.



After the ice cream layer was complete, Solon mixed up the 4 drops of food coloring in with the whipped topping.  You can add more food coloring for a deeper color!



Then they mixed...






We placed the whipped cream layer on top and Mom helped by smoothing it out.  They were VERY proud of their pie!


Last step -- add the garnish.  They chose Andes' mints and (with washed hands) they crumbled the mints on to the pie.  We placed it back in the freezer to harden, then wrapped it in tin foil so it would be ready to take with us to our friends for dinner.  

You can add any flavor of ice cream and double up on ice cream flavors.  Just let the first layer of ice cream set and come back with an additional layer.  You can also add in syrups, like caramel sauce or hot fudge.  Ice cream pies are simple and always a fan favorite.

Add this to your St. Patrick's Day menu and include it as a fun activity with your kids.  We had a lot of fun and there might have been spoon licking once the pie was safely out of sight ;).

Have you ever made one?  What flavor would you make?

Add this to your St. Patrick's Day menu and include it as a fun activity with your kids.  We had a lot of fun and there might have been spoon licking once the pie was safely out of sight ;).

Until next time, keep on smiling and keep on keeping on!
