Mint Chocolate Pudding Pie.

 

You know how sometimes you make something so dang delicious that you dream about it the next day?  How you keep trying to find an upcoming special occasion so that you can make it again?  World Penguin Day?  Hug an Australian Day?  We should totally make this pie to celebrate!

 

It is so chocolaty and delicious.  And with such a lovely, subtle hint of mint — pure perfection.  Make it for a birthday.  For an obscure holiday.  For Sunday supper.  Or make it just because (my favorite).

 

Have a lovely weekend, friend!

For the crust, you will need:

6 T. unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

About 15 Oreo cookies with filling removed

1 c. powdered sugar

1/2 t. peppermint extract

 

For the pudding layer, you will need:

One 3.9 oz. package instant chocolate pudding

2 c. milk

2. In a food processor, pulse cookies until fine crumbs.  Add in melted butter and pulse until combined.

3. Press into a 9″ pie plate using the bottom of a small glass.

4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.  Let cool.
