{Peppermint-Stick Pie}

December 09, 2013

We celebrated my sweet sister's birthday while I was in Columbia last week, and rather than baking her a traditional cake, my mom made delicious Peppermint-Stick Pie for the birthday girl.  Oh man it was sooooo good!!  I usually try to refrain from the desserts so I can keep those calories from going straight to my backside ;), but I can't ever turn down this Peppermint-Stick Pie.  It is so yummy, and I swear I felt an instant jolt of holiday spirit with my first bite.

Here are a few perks about this scrumptious pie...It only takes 10 minutes to prepare, it's a perfect post-dinner treat to serve over the holidays, and it's also a great pie to tote to your Christmas parties (just be sure to keep it in the freezer until you're ready to serve).
I hope you make it soon because I just know you're going to love it!! :)

  • 3 pints (1 1/2 quarts) peppermint ice cream
  • 1 chocolate-flavored crumb pie shell
  • 1 12-ounce jar fudge ice cream topping
  • Coarsely crushed candy or striped round peppermint candies (optional)
  1. In a chilled bowl, stir ice cream until softened.
  2. Spoon ice cream onto pie shell, spreading evenly. Return to freezer for at least 4 hours.
  3. To serve, warm the fudge topping in the microwave oven according to directions on jar.  Let pie stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before slicing.  Serve with warmed topping.  If desired, sprinkle with crushed candies.  Makes 8 servings.
