My mom used to make this 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!

This pie is best when it is frozen for 12-24 hours so make sure you plan for that time. This will ensure the pie becomes nice and firm and all of those mint flavors blend together.

How to Make An Oreo Ice Cream Cake From Scratch

Mint Oreo Crust

Put the Oreos in a food processor, pulse into a crumble, and then place them in a bowl with the melted butter. Place the mixture into the pan and press into the bottom and sides with your hands. Put 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. Remove the crust from the freezer and add the ice cream. 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.

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. Freeze for 12-24 hours.

Tips on Making this Ice Cream Pie

  • This pie is best when fully frozen so plan ahead and make it the day before a celebration or event.
  • The chocolate syrup layer is a little messy because it doesn’t fully freeze. You can skip it or drizzle it on top of the whipped cream if you don’t want the chocolate syrup to ooze out when you slice the pie.
  • If you don’t want to make your own whipped cream, you can use frozen whipped topping like Cool Whip.

Which Pie Pan to Use?

I used my 7″ springform pan that I also use for my Instant Pot. If you don’t have one, you can use a pie pan, a glass baking dish, or even a basic cake pan. You may have to adjust the measurement a little, but the pie will still taste delicious!

Equipment

  • electric hand mixer
  • vegetable peeler

Ingredients

Mint Oreo Crust

  • 25 mint Oreo cookies
  • 5 tablespoon butter, melted

Ice Cream and Chocolate Syrup Layers

  • 36 ounces green mint ice cream (I used light "churned" ice cream)
  • ½ cup chocolate syrup

Mint Whipped Cream Layer

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup confectioners powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Shavings

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

Instructions

  • 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.

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!
