Gluten and Dairy free Mud Pie

I've been wanting an ice cream cake all day, but really don't want to throw in the towel on being healthy like I did with Elliott's pregnancy and gain 45lbs! So I found this delicious alternative based off a recipe my Aunt Julie gave me. I simplified the original recipe a bit because I was too sick and lazy to want to spend too much time in the kitchen today.

Find a box of gluten free chocolate cookies.
Add 2-4 tblsp coconut oil.
Mix in food processor.
Press into pie pan.
Melt chocolate chips.
Scoop softened ice cream into pie pan.
Drizzle melted chocolate chips on top. I should have used the whole bag so the top of the pie could be covered. I didn't want to go back and melt more so I'll just remember that for next time. ;)
Put in freezer for about an hour.
Cut and serve. Delicious and easy!
