4-Ingredient Shamrock Ice Cream Pie Recipe: An Easy Chocolate Mint Pie Recipe for St. Patrick's Day

Need a last-minute St. Patrick’s Day dessert that you can whip up for a crowd? No problem! This easy shamrock pie recipe is quick to make and so refreshing.

This ice cream pie has just four ingredients: a premade graham cracker pie crust, mint chocolate chip ice cream, mint cookies and hot fudge. Half of the ice cream is spread into the bottom of the graham cracker pie crust then topped with crushed mint cookies. Freeze for 30 minutes before spreading with the remaining ice cream. Drizzle with the hot fudge sauce and sprinkle with more crushed cookies. Freeze until firm. Top with whipped cream right before serving. Delish!

If you can't find mint chocolate chip ice cream, you could use vanilla ice cream and tint it green with food coloring. Use whatever chocolate cookies you prefer for this easy ice cream pie recipe. Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Cuisine: American / Irish
