Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

Yesterday was Pi Day (3/14/15 = 3.1415) AND we were going to a St Patrick's Day party at our friend's house, so I made a grasshopper pie. It's barely even a recipe. I was inspired by this beautiful pie recipe and made a super simple pie.

This is what it looked like after I started cutting it up and serving it, and then realized hadn't taken a picture:

So basically it's an Oreo crust filled with softened Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream, topped with Cool Whip and some chocolate fudge drizzle. B&J's mint ice cream is white, not green, so it didn't look minty. You could probably add food coloring if you care. I didn't have any extra Oreos or else I would have cut them up and put them on top. This pie was perfect and delicious and so easy. Yum!

Here's the original recipe:
