Today I celebrated my 36th birthday with lots of hugs, kisses, and homemade pictures from my kids. My hubby…he made me a mud pie…

Mud Pie

  • 1 pre-made chocolate pie crust
  • 1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream, softened
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 container fudge frosting (like what you would buy to cover a cake)
  • 1 bag of candy, smashed and divided (he used butterfinger)
  • chocolate syrup
  • whipped cream

Fill the pie crust with chocolate ice cream so it is level with the top of the crust and allow it to set in the freezer.

In a medium size bowl, (about the same size as pie crust), line with plastic wrap and mix entire 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream with 3/4 of the crushed candy. Place in the freezer until hard.

After the chocolate ice cream is hardened in the crust, spread the fudge frosting over the top and sprinkle with remaining candies. Put back in the freezer and allow it to harden.

Once both the chocolate ice cream crust and vanilla ice cream bowl has hardened, flip the vanilla ice cream mixture onto the top of the chocolate fudge candy sprinkled crust. Mold the edges together. Cover the entire pie with plastic wrap and allow to set in the freezer overnight.

Unwrap. Slice. Cover the top with whipped cream. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Garnish with a cherry. And wish you wife a Happy Birthday.
