Asphalt Pie is one of my all time favorite treats. I can eat it any time of the year! My family loves it, too, so there is usually at least one request for it as a birthday cake. It's so fast and easy to whip up.
1 carton (the regular size used to be 2 quarts, but it's like 1.5 now) of your favorite Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream
22-26 Oreo cookies, crushed (you know I always do 26. and then, I just eat the Oreo-y, buttery goodness. this is how I would prefer to eat Oreos--steeped in butter! haha!)
1/3 cup melted butter
Caramel ice cream topping
Whipped cream, (sweetened) you can make your own, but I actually like to use the squirty kind as long as it's real whipped cream. I like how it comes out light and fluffy. And it's fun.
So, crush your Oreos and mix them with the butter. Then put them into a pie plate. (I like a 10 inch pie plate, but any size is fine) Be sure and get the crumbs up the sides and do it fairly thick. If it's too thin, it doesn't hold up well when you scoop it out of the pan to serve. Reserve about 1/3 cup for the top to make it look nice. After you get the crust into the pan, put it in the freezer til it's hardened. After the crust is hardened, take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften a bit, take the crust back out of the freezer. Then get a metal spatula and scoop it out of carton and cram it into the Oreo crust. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs onto the top of the ice cream. Stick it back into the freezer for an hour or so til ready to serve.
Take out the pie and cut into serving slices. Add whipped cream to top and then drizzle with caramel and chocolate. Serve! It is always a hit!!!
