Fudge Topped Chocolate Ice Cream Pie #IceCreamWeek #Giveaway

Fudge Topped Chocolate Ice Cream Pie | Easy Ice Cream Pie Recipe

A Summer Family Tradition

This Fudge Topped Chocolate Ice Cream Pie has made an appearance on our summer menu for years. My first few pies were sans a fudge topping, but once my family tasted the upgraded version, there was no looking back. I don’t usually garnish, but for the kick off of Ice Cream Week, I needed a glamorized version. A few dollops of whipped cream and some halved Oreos can turn a simple dessert into a company worthy grand finale.

Welcome to Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to bring you ice cream treats all week long. I hope you have as much fun as we did. Break out those stretchy pants and celebrate Ice Cream Week with us.

The Perfect Summer Dessert

This crust is formed by patting a mixture of cookie crumbs, melted butter and a couple spoonfuls of sugar into a greased pie plate. No baking necessary; it’s just popped in the freezer while you let the ice cream soften on the counter. I’ve mixed some booze into the premium chocolate chocolate chip ice cream…not enough to make the younger sect cringe, but an ideal amount for flavor enhancement. You may have heard that a bit of coffee helps intensify the chocolate in a dessert, so I always use Kahlua in this recipe. The hubby does not like coffee or anything mocha, but he’s never complained about a slosh of coffee liqueur. Any addition of alcohol will lower the freezing point, keeping the ice cream from becoming rock hard. So having both Kahlua and brandy in small amounts makes for an easy to slice pie. Use a jar of the best fudge sauce you can find to cover the ice cream layer. I’ve utilized homemade before, but this is summer, so give yourself a break! A hot, dry knife will help you cut through the topping.

Fudge Topped Chocolate Ice Cream Pie #IceCreamWeek

Ingredients

  • 1 9-ounce package of chocolate wafer cookies (or 22 chocolate sandwich cookies), process or crushed into fine crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (omit if using sandwich cookies)
  • 1 quart premium chocolate-chocolate chip ice cream (or other favorite flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 2 tablespoons Kahula or other coffee liqueur
  • 1 jar fudge sauce (mine was 12.25 ounces)
  • Sweetened whipped cream, halfed chocolate sandwich cookies to garnish

Instructions

  1. Mix cookie crumbs, melted butter and sugar (if using) in a medium bowl. Pat into a greased, 9-inch pie plate. Freeze.
  2. Set out ice cream to soften while crust freezes.
  3. Mix softened ice cream, brandy and Kahula. Dump into center of frozen crust and use an offset spatula to smooth top. Freeze till solid, a few hours.
  4. Put large spoonfuls of fudge sauce over top of ice cream and quickly spread to cover. Ice cream will start melting so you may need to patch with more sauce if it breaks though the topping. Place in freezer.
  5. Whip cream and pipe small mounds onto parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze and use to garnish finished cake. Place a half cookie onto each whipped cream mound if desired.
  6. Yield: 6-8 servings
    Total time: 5 hours with freezing times
