I had to bring my own Peppermint Crunch Ice Cream Pie to Thanksgiving dinner because I don’t love pumpkin pie (I know, I know . . . something is seriously wrong with me).
However, I do love all things peppermint flavored and I am a sucker for ice cream. The rest is history.
My family devoured this pie even faster than the pumpkin pie. I used a pre-made crumb pie crust, but you could definitely make your own crust if you are super ambitious.
How far in advance can I make this Peppermint Crunch Ice Cream Pie?
I LOVE ice cream, but have you ever taken it out of the freezer, and had a bite, and all you can taste is the freezer?
This recipe is wonderful because you can make it a little in advance, however, I would not make this too far in advance.
If you want to make this pie ahead of time, I recommend making and eating it within 3-4 days.
Otherwise it will begin to get freezer burned, and it will lose it’s delicious flavor.
I would definitely add the desired toppings right before serving, and not before storing in the freezer.

WHAT OTHER ICE CREAM FLAVORS COULD I MAKE THIS PIE WITH?
I am an ice cream pie and cake fanatic. I pretty much love all flavors, but here are a few of my favorite combinations, with the Oreo crust:
-Strawberry ice cream
-Cookies and Cream ice cream
-Rocky Road ice cream
-Chocolate ice cream
-Cookie Dough ice cream
-Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream
-Coconut ice cream
Really you could make this pie using any ice cream flavor. You could also switch out the Oreo pie crust, for graham cracker crust.
WHAT OTHER TOPPINGS COULD I PUT ON IT?
I am a toppings kind of girl. It’s not a recipe unless it is garnished, and has that extra kick of flavor.
My favorite toppings to add to this recipe are:
-melted chocolate chips
You could add any of your other favorite ice cream toppings as well, such as candy bar crumbles, sprinkles, bananas, etc.
