-----CRUST----- 12 Oreo cookies -- crushed well
3 tablespoons Butter -- melted
1 quart Coffee ice cream
-----MUD SAUCE----- 1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Miniature marshmallows
1 cup Evaporated milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
-----GARNISH----- 1 cup Whipping cream -- whipped
2 ounces Kahlua liqueur
1/4 cup Powdered sugar
1/2 cup Nuts -- chopped
Combine cookie crumbs and butter and press into bottom of buttered 9-10" pie pan. Refrigerate. When chilled, spoon one-half softened ice cream on top of crust. Pour half of Mud Sauce over ice creeam and proceed with another layer of ice cream and top off with the remaining Mud Sauce. Mud Sauce: In medium saucepan, melt the sauce ingredients over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens, adding vanilla after removing sauce from heat. Cool long enough so as to not melt the ice cream while po
uring Mud Sauce over it. Top with Garnish and freeze. Garnish: Whip cream, add powdered sugar and Kahlua. Decorate top of Mud Pie with Garnish: Use decorating bag with star or shell tip or spread whipped cream over pie and sprinkle top with finely chopped nuts. Freeze solid.
Ideas: Double the recipe and use a buttered 9 x 13" pan. This should serve 24 persons. If you don't like nuts on top, try chocolate curls. Use a block of chocolate and with a potato peeler, peel the chocolate along one of the edges. Use chocolate at room temperature or else you'll get bits and pieces of shavings.
