Measure out two cups of ice cream in a medium bowl and let it melt just enough to be able to stir in 1/2 cup mini M&M's with a large spoon (about 10-15 minutes). Spread evenly into the pie crust and then sprinkle the 1/4 cup of the M&M's on the top. Cover and put in the freezer for at least 4 hours. Serve immediately. Makes eight servings.
