Mom's Mud Pie
It's tradition in our family to pick your favorite dessert for your birthday-- so no crappy store bought birthday cake with dye-your-tongue frosting for us! There are so many variations you can create according to your liking too, like swapping Reeses PB cups for Snickers, or Twix, etc. and same with ice cream flavors.
From: Joan Morris
1 store bought (or homemade Oreo crust)
1 bottle good quality hot fudge (I like Mrs. Richardson's)
1/2 gallon ice cream (I used Reeses Peanut Butter Explosion, but Moose Tracks is also a fav)
4-5 Reeses PB cups, chopped thickly
Pull your ice cream out of the freezer a few minutes before assembling to soften. Heat hot fudge in the microwave for a few seconds (15-30) until runny. Pour half the bottle into Oreo crust. Smooth softened ice cream in a mound on top of crust. Freeze until set again. When ready to serve, pour a little of the extra hot fudge over top, sprinkle the Reeses PB cups, and squirt with whipped cream. Enjoy!
