Post Peppermint Stick Hot Fudge Pie

A friend of our family used to make this every year for my family during our holidays and it was always sooooo good. It's just very colourful, fun and tastes very yummy.

Peppermint Stick Hot Fudge Pie

Ingredients

Shell
1 1/2 cup cookie crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Filling
1 half gallon of peppermint ice cream (You can usually find this around Christmas time but some stores carry it all of the time)
1 -12 ounce jar chocolate hot fudge
Coarsely crushed striped peppermint candies

Shell
Mix the cookie crumbs, melted butter and sugar until thoroughly blended and press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool for 30 minutes and chill for a few hours.

Filling
In a chilled mixing bowl, stir ice cream until softened but not melted. Spoon the softened ice cream onto the chilled chocolate shell and chill overnight.

Pour warm chocolate fudge topping over the ice cream pie and sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies. Place the pie in the freezer until about 10 minutes before you are ready to serve it.
And that's it! Very simple but beautiful and decadent.

I've never been a fan of peppermint but I know a few people who will love this! Thanks DarkFae.

I agree, to sit down and just have a bowl of peppermint ice cream is a little overwhelming to the taste buds. But in this recipe it is really festive and not as over-powering. It really compliments the fudge and crust very well and is a nice change to the typical holiday pie theme.

It is fantastic.I've made this torte at least 10 times for Christmas - I first made it in 1996 and still have the magazine recipe which is now covered with sticky memories. My family begs me to make it every year. A word on ingredients: Newman's Own Chocolate Cookies OR Oreo cookie crumbs are both delicious as traditional chocolate wafers are hard to find. Be sure the peppermint candy tastes minty and not artificial. Brachs is a good brand of candy. I double the peppermint extract and use real heavy cream not the ultra pasteurized stuff.


Thanks!
