Candy Cane Mud Pie

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 - Create this frozen rich combination of peppermint candy canes and chocolate fudge.

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?Candy Cane Mud Pie Recipe - Want a special dessert recipe for the holidays?

Creating this candy cane mud pie is fun and easy with just 5 ingredients.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes


  • 1 package of chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 jar of fudge
  • 1 container of candy cane or peppermint ice cream
  • small candy canes
  • spring form pan


  1. Set the ice cream container on the counter to soften.
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. Reserve three sandwich cookies and crush the rest.
  4. Mix the crushed cookies with the melted butter.
  5. Press the cookie mixture into the bottom of a spring form pan to form a crust.
  6. Heat the fudge until it smoother and spread it on top of the crust.
  7. Unwrap the small candy canes and press them into the fudgey crust so that they stand up against the outside of the spring form pan.
  8. Carefully press the softened ice cream into the pan. I placed it in the middle first and them pushed out against the candy canes. Use the entire container of ice cream.
  9. Place whole or crushed sandwich cookies into the center of the pie.
  10. Arrange the candy canes around the center cookies.
  11. Freeze the pie until hard.
