TIPS FOR MAKING ICE CREAM SUNDAE PIE
- Prep time: If you’re making homemade ice cream, chocolate fudge sauce, or whipped cream for the Sundae Pie, then prep those ingredients in advance before starting the recipe.
- Pie crust: Put the graham crackers in your food processor and pulse until they’re broken into small, coarse crumbs. If you don’t want to use a food processor, put them in a Ziploc bag, and use a rolling pin to break them on your countertop. Stir the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter together in a medium bowl. Once the crumbs are coated in the other ingredients, transfer the mixture to a 9-inch pie plate. Use your hands to press the crust down evenly in the dish.
- Chocolate peanut butter: Add the chocolate chips and peanut butter to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave them at 50% power for 1 minute. Then stir the melted mixture until it’s smooth. Spread the chocolate peanut butter evenly over the crust. Be gentle to make sure you don’t break the crust.
- Ice cream filling: Scoop dollops of vanilla ice cream into the pie plate. Use an offset spatula to spread the ice cream out from the middle.
- Toppings: Before serving pour chocolate sauce over ice cream then top that with whipped cream and chopped peanuts.
VARIATIONS ON ICE CREAM SUNDAE PIE
- Caramel sauce: For some extra sweetness add Homemade Salted Caramel Topping along with the hot fudge sauce.
- Toppings: The great thing about this Ice Cream Pie is that, just like with an ice cream sundae, you can add all your favorite kinds of toppings. Try adding sprinkles, walnuts, pecans, coconut flakes, dark chocolate chunks, m&ms, gummy bears, or cherry toppings.
- Ice flavors: For more ice cream flavors try out chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate chip, cookie dough, or Neapolitan.
