Grasshopper Pie

· 1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
· 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
· 1 (1/2 gallon) container mint chocolate ice cream, softened slightly
· 2 ready-made Oreo pie crusts
· Mini chocolate chips for garnish

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Cool Whip and cream cheese with an electric mixer until just combined.
2. Add the ice cream to the Cool Whip with a large spoon.
3. Divide the mixture between the pie shells. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips before serving. 

EDITED TO ADD: When I made this pie for Emily's birthday, I added Mini Mint Oreos and used a chocolate pie crust.  I garnished with Keebler's Grasshopper Cookies.  These Oreos came in a box and can be found next to the regular Oreos at J&J. 

The Grasshopper cookies are a first cousin to the Girl Scout's famous Thin Mints.  Yum!
