Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cups



Happy Labor Day
I saw this super simple "recipe" on an episode of the Pioneer Woman.  My son begged me to make them.  Really so simple, just 3 ingredients and what could be yummier than ice cream and Oreos? Great little treat to keep in the fridge for the kids.  You can find the original recipe here.

Ingredients:
2 pints of vanilla ice-cream, slightly softened
1 package of Oreo cookies
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Preparation:
In a food processor pulse 15 Oreo cookies until they are small crumbs. Add melted butter to cookies crumbs and mix until combined.  Press a tablespoon of the cookie mixture into the bottom of each muffin tin and press up the side.  Freeze until set, about 15 minutes.  Meanwhile take 8-10 more Oreos and put in food processor and pulse into crumbs.  Put softened vanilla ice-cream in a large bowl and add cookie crumbs and mix to combine.  Spoon ice-cream mixture into each muffin cup on top of cookie crumb crust.  Top with some extra crushed Oreos and place muffin tin in the freezer overnight to set.  I used a silicone muffin tin which made it very easy to pop out each ice cream cup.  Pop out cups and store in a ziploc bag in the freezer.
