Instructions Checklist
  • Freeze the crust until firm, about 30 minutes. Place half the coffee ice cream into a bowl, and let it stand about 10 minutes to soften. Return remaining ice cream to the freezer. Mix softened ice cream with the mini chocolate chips. Spread the ice cream and chips in an even layer over the frozen crust. Cover with plastic wrap, and freeze for 2 hours.

  • Heat the topping in the microwave on low until warm and easy to pour, 30 seconds to 1 minute (do not let the sauce get very hot). Pour into a bowl. Set aside 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs for garnish; stir remaining cookie crumbs into the fudge topping. Remove the pie from the freezer, and layer the cookie crumbs and fudge topping mixture over the ice cream with chips. Cover with plastic wrap, and return to freezer for 2 hours.

  • Take the remaining frozen coffee ice cream out of the freezer, and allow to stand for about 10 minutes to soften. Layer the ice cream over the layer of cookie crumbs and fudge topping. Cover with plastic wrap, and return to freezer for 2 more hours.

  • Remove pie, and frost the top of the pie with the whipped topping. Top with the reserved cookie crumbs. Cover with plastic wrap, and return to freezer for 2 more hours to freeze the whipped topping layer. Cut the pie into serving pieces, and drizzle each serving with about 1 tablespoon of the chocolate syrup.

Cook's Note

If you can freeze overnight before serving, it is better.

Our family all agreed it deserved 5 stars! Alot of work, but well worth it. All you need is a sliver cuz it is so sweet. Will totally make again :-) Couldn't find coffee ice cream so I made it with vanilla yogurt and fat free cool whip. Yummy! Read More

I’ve made mud pie for over 30 years (my husband’s requested birthday dessert!) and decided to try a variation, just for fun. (I made this as written but substituted heavy whipping cream for the cool whip.) This is all just too much. Too. Much. The mini chocolate chips are a good idea but 12 oz is way too much...I would recommend 6 oz or even less. Even better would be a crushed Oreo layer between ice cream layers and skip the mini chips. The chocolate syrup on top of it all — again, just too much. (And I like chocolate!) Warming the fudge sauce and pouring it over the frozen ice cream made a mess, although added yumminess. I think I’ll revert to my usual method: chocolate crust, coffee ice cream, warm fudge sauce poured over slice, add a generous dollop of whipped cream, and sprinkle with toasted almonds. Skip the chips. Consider the crushed cookies. Read More

My son wanted an ice cream cake for his 18th birthday, but I made this pie instead. I only used about 2 Tbsp of chocolate chips mixed in the first ice cream layer & it was plenty with the coffee ice cream. Topped the Cool Whip with rainbow sprinkles instead of crushed oreos & chocolate drizzle. He loved it! Read More

Great recipe! Agree with the other reviewer that it is super sweet so you only need a sliver. I made my own Oreo crust with ground up Oreos and butter. So decedent! Read More

My big family had a party and I made two of these. Everyone LOVED them! They turned out really beautiful too:). I made one with coffee ice cream and one with vanilla since I wasn't sure how the coffee would go over with all the kiddos. Both were amazing but the coffee was our favorite. Just seemed to have that extra special something. My aunt who is known for her mud pies said that her secret recipe involved a drizzle of Kahlua on the top. I might try that next! For the crust... I bought 3 prepackaged Oreo crusts and put them into my own prettier and bigger pie dishes. I wanted to make sure I had enough room for all the ice cream per other reviews. I had to add a smidge of melted butter to help bind the crust when I did this. Everything else I did the same... but I used a whole container of ice cream for each one not just a quart. Oh and I did only put one package of tini chocolate chips for both pies instead of just one. It was plenty. And for the topping... we like Reddi Whip so I put that around the edge and one dollop in the middle. I put cherries in the middle and Oreo cookies around the edge before I drizzled it all with syrup. Lastly I did only wait 40 minutes or so before each step. And yes like other reviewers said it is sweet. But that's what makes it so good! One of my sisters thought the bottom was cookie dough instead of just ice cream! When you slice it up it's as pretty as it is delicious! Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

I made this recipe and thought it was way too sweet--but part of my problem was that I couldn't get all of the ice cream called for on the second later so the chocolate really overpowered the coffee flavor. I would recommend halving the chocolate chips in the bottom layer. My pie didn't look like the picture which looks like it has just a few chips in the bottom layer. I used the whole bag which may have been misunderstanding the recipe. And make sure you thoroughly freeze the bottom layer before you put on the hot fudge layer or they will get melted together.
