Oh. My. Goodness. It is so hot at my house!! My little swamp cooler is just not cutting it today and so I refuse to use my oven. This is the ice cream mud pie I made for dessert tonight. It is easy to throw together and all you need a microwave (or a hot house!) to melt the butter and a freezer so that it can set up. And it tastes amazing! :)
1 (15 oz) package of Oreo's
1/2 cup margarine (or butter), melted
1 (12 oz) container fudge ice cream topping (I used hot fudge)
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
2 cups nuts, chopped (optional)
Crushed Oreos to sprinkle on top
Crush the package of Oreo's and mix with melted margarine. Press into 9x13" cake pan or 2 pie pans. Soften ice cream at room temperature for about 30-35 minutes. Spread onto the Oreo crust. Freeze for 2 hours. Pour warm fudge topping over ice cream. Freeze until well chilled (I usually freeze it for about 6-8 hours to make sure that it is set up). Cut into serving-size pieces. Top individual pieces with whipped topping, nuts, drizzled hot fudge, and crushed oreos.
