I’m always on the hunt for a easy holiday dessert or pie recipe that will take some of the stress out of holiday meal planning. I’m usually in charge several side dishes and a couple desserts for our holiday dinners, so having an easy pie is a must for me.
And there is no better crust for this no bake pie than an Oreo pie crust…serious yum! All that chocolate-y goodness goes so well with the creamy peppermint ice cream. It’s a match made in pie heaven!
For me and my family, the holidays are all about the peppermint desserts and drinking way too much eggnog. I don’t know why, but pretty much from Thanksgiving until New Years Day…it’s full on peppermint everything. No more pumpkin or pumpkin spice lattes for me, bring on the Peppermint Mochas.
How do you celebrate the holidays and the end of the year? Do you have favorite peppermint dessert that I need to try? I’d love hear about it.

- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 gallon carton Peppermint Ice Cream
