This pie reminds me of ice cream 🙂 . My mom used to make if often for birthdays. In fact, my grandmother just had it for her birthday in April. Very tasty!

cutting pie   piece of pie

Crushed oreo cookies enough to make crust

1 TBSP melted butter

1 pkg. (3.9oz) chocolate instant pudding mix

3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. milk

4 1/2 tsp. instant coffee granules

1 12oz. container coolwhip

2 Tbsp. choc. syrup (optional)

mix cookie crumbs with melted butter. Press into greased 9-inch pie plate patting crumbs onto bottom and up side of the pie plate to coat evenly. In large bowl, whisk pudding mix, milk, and instant coffee; fold in 3 cups of the whipped topping. Pour filling into pie plate. Decorate by piping remaining whipped topping onto top of pie. Freeze 6-8 hours or until solid. Drizzle with chocolate syrup just before serving.

Yield: 8 servings

Want it lower in fat? Just replace the oreos with reduced fat chocolate cream-filled sandwich cookies, the 2% milk with skim, and the regular cool whip with reduced fat or fat-free.
