My husband, oldest son & daughter really like the flavor combination of mint and chocolate. I have several recipes up my sleeve that combine that particular flavor combination, and this recipe is one of them. I have been making this pie since my kids were toddlers, and have never heard any complaints about it – just the perfect sound of silence as they gobble it up. This recipe is very easy, has minimal ingredients, and is no bake. The oreo crust is so delicious, and can be used to make other flavored pies – the options are limitless.
24 oreos (ground into coarse crumbs in a food processor)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 (5.1 oz.)pkg. instant vanilla pudding, prepared per direstions
