Girl Scout Cookie Recipe: Easy Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie

Girl Scout Cookie Recipe Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie Dessert
We don’t travel very much during February as it’s both a period of detox after the holidays and every Girl Scout’s favorite time of year… cookie season. I realize those two things don’t necessarily go together but we make do.

Typically, I over-estimate the amount we are motivated to sell and look for ways to unload/use up huge quantities of cookies as quickly as possible. I know that I am not alone.

This Girl Scout cookie recipe takes just a few minutes to make and uses an entire box of Thin Mints. An entire box! I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to make this. Do-Si-Do fans should try an ice cream pie with vanilla ice cream. The options are endless.

Girl Scout Cookie Recipe:  Easy Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie

Ingredients

    For the pie
  • 1 box of Girl Scout Thin Mints
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 gallon of mint chip ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup premade or homemade chocolate sauce
  • If you want to make homemade chocolate sauce
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder

Instructions

    To make chocolate sauce
  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Heat the milk, vanilla and butter over medium heat while whisking constantly until the butter melts.
  3. Whisk in the dry ingredients.
  4. Keep whisking until the mixture boils. Whisk for about a minute longer and remove from heat.
  5. Let cool. Store extra sauce in the refrigerator.
  6. To make the pie
  7. Place the entire box of Thin Mints and melted butter inside a food processor and pulse until crumbs bind together. Alternatively, crush the Thin Mints manually and then mix with melted butter.
  8. Press the crumb mixture into an 8" springform pan or pie dish. Try to press it one inch up the sides though if using a springform pan, don't worry about it.
  9. Scoop the softened ice cream into the crust. You'll use the entire gallon and could even add in more, if using a springform pan.
  10. Use an angled spatula to smooth out the top. It helps to run it under hot water first.
  11. Pour desired amount of chocolate sauce on top. Make sure that it isn't hot, otherwise it will melt the ice cream.
  12. Let sit in the freezer for about 4 hours. Cut and serve.
