Mud pie is one of my favorite desserts. While this pie is not difficult to make, there are several steps. It is important to refreeze the pie in between steps since your ice cream will begin to melt. Mud pie is a delicious option to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion. It is a great way to enjoy your ice cream. This mud pie is even better since the recipe also incorporates Oreo cookies. Each layer of this pie is filled with chocolate and coffee. Between each layer of ice cream there is a chocolate layer similar to the topping Magic Shell. Magic Shell can easily be made at home with coconut oil and melted chocolate. I made this mud pie with a prepared Oreo cookie crust. However, you can easily make your own pie crust with Oreo cookie crumbs and butter.
