This gorgeous Red Velvet Ice Box Pie combines crushed red velvet sandwich cookies with a decadent and simple-to-make cream cheese filling. Add a homemade chocolate crust and it's a red velvet lovers dream dessert come true.
Red Velvet Ice Box Pie
When I first made this recipe, red velvet Oreos were quite easy to find. Since then, I've been making this pie with other brands as those aren't as readily available. Trust me, it's still quite delicious so any brand will work. When putting together this pie, it was a given that the crust should be chocolate. It only adds to the overall red velvet theme. I used chocolate graham crackers but you could just as easily use crushed chocolate animal crackers or teddy grahams. Since having children, those sorts of cookies and snacks are always stocked in my pantry. I've made many desserts using the crumbs from those packages as the beginning of a cookie crust. It works like a charm.
