Create this amazing candy cane mud pie for your next holiday celebration.
This weekend is our annual family Christmas party and I am serving this amazing peppermint candy cane ice cream pie. This candy cane mud pie looks difficult, but it’s quite easy to make. The biggest challenge is getting the candy canes to stand up around the edge of the pie. I took spoonfuls of the softened ice cream to help hold them in place. How how neat does that candy cane edge look?
Candy Cane Mud Pie Recipe
If you’ve followed my blog for very long, you know that I like really yummy food that is simple to make. This ice cream pie is no exception. You only need five easy ingredients and a spring form pan: chocolate sandwich cookies, butter, hot fudge sauce, candy cane ice cream, and mini candy canes.Crush the sandwich cookies and mix them with the melted butter. Press that mixture into the bottom of a spring form pan to form the bottom crust. The fudge pairs well with the mint of the candy canes. Place some of the ice cream on top of the fudge. As you get toward the edge put the candy canes in place. Put more ice cream in place to hold the candy canes up. Get it into the freezer to harden right away. Make this for your next gathering and impress your guests! I assure you that it will disappear quickly.
It’s so fun and festive. The peppermint of the candy canes is a perfect contracts to the chocolate fudge. My family has requested that I make it again for Christmas.
How delicious does that look? It’s very rich and yummy! I love the combination of mint and chocolate. Have you ever made a mud pie?
