Okay, so no doubt I love my veggies, but I also love to see the happy smile a sweet treat can bring to my friends and family! How many times have you been at your favorite restaurant celebrating a birthday and you order a slice of ice cream pie?? Like all the time right? Well, I can show you a very simple way to duplicate those pies – – now granted, its gonna take some time – – ice cream needs time to set, but the end result is out of this world!
Mint Chip Brownie Ice Cream Pie Print
- Vanilla Wafers
- Vanilla Extract
- Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (I use Dreyers or Breyers Vanilla Bean for a deep vanilla flavor.)
- Brownie Bites
- Mint Chip Ice Cream
- Caramel Topping
- Fudge Topping
One cup of vanilla wafers crushed (I put in a plastic bag and break up with a rolling pin)
Mix wafers with 3 tablespoons of warm butter, ¼ tsp of vanilla extract and ¼ tsp of honey. Blend.
Pour crust mixture into spring form pan and press down to flatten evenly around pan with wax paper. Put in freezer for at least a half hour.
Pour fudge on top of crust to create a light, even coating. Put in freezer for at least an hour.
Let ½ gallon of vanilla bean ice cream soften and mix with pieces of brownie bites. Put ice cream in pan and flatten with spatula for an even top. Put in freezer for at least a couple of hours to make sure all the layers set.
Pour Caramel on top of ice cream to create a light, even coating. Put in freezer for at least an hour to set.
Put layer of Mint Chip ice cream to top of pan. Put in freezer for at least an hour to set.
Crumble pieces of brownie bites around top. Drizzle top of pie with caramel going one direction and then fudge topping going the opposite direction to get a “criss cross” pattern. Put in freezer for several hours, allowing all the layers to set well.
When serving, I remove the spring form sides and using a can of whip cream, go around edges of pie with small “flower” shaped squirts all around the edge.
You can also make these in a cupcake form.
