This Mile High Asphalt Pie (Winger’s Copycat) is AMAZING! The chocolate mint ice cream drizzled with caramel and sprinkled with cookies is to die for!
Our version of Winger’s Mile High Asphalt Pie is THE BEST frozen pie EVER. It has a chocolatey, Oreo crust, a mint chocolate ice cream filling, a warm salted caramel topping, and you top it all off with some homemade whipped cream. Every bite of this pie is scrumptious. I can’t get enough!
When I first tried this pie I was a tiny bit skeptical about the combination of mint chocolate and salted caramel but let me tell you – IT IS AMAZING. The salt brings out all of the flavors so well! I don’t know who came up with the idea of salted caramel, but they should be generously thanked. I love salted caramel and it is truly tasty on this pie. One bite of this and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
You can make an entire Mile High Asphalt Pie for almost the same cost as one slice of it at the Winger’s restaurant. The pie can be made with one or two cartons of mint chocolate chip ice cream. If you want it “mile high” like it is served at the restaurant, go for two cartons. For a regular size pie, one carton is plenty. Be sure to use a good quality ice cream. I like to use Dreyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream in this pie. It is smooth and creamy and has a pretty green color. Some brands of mint chocolate chip ice cream have a very light, almost white, tint to them. They still taste good, but they don’t look as pretty in this pie. It’s simply a matter of preference.
The Oreo crust is a favorite of mine for pies that have chocolate in them. To crush the Oreos, I place them in a plastic resealable bag and let as much air as I can out of the bag before sealing it. I then use a rolling pin to roll over the Oreos until they are finely crushed. Before they are completely crushed, I pull out a few larger pieces to use as a garnish on top of the whipped cream.
If you want to make a whole Winger’s themed dinner, make sure to check out our version of Winger’s Wings with Freakin’ Amazing Sauce or our version of Winger’s Sticky Fingers and Freakin’ Amazing Sauce. They taste EXACTLY like the wings from Winger’s! It is one of the most requested meals at my house, especially on game days. We like to serve them with steak fries and now we serve them with this Winger’s Asphalt Pie for dessert.
