 Who’s ready for ice cream? Despite the fact that I’ve been eating ice cream for almost every  night for the last few weeks thanks to 6 new ice cream week recipes I’m still ready for some.  That’s dedication isn’t it?  Now while the weather is feeling more fall-like than summer at the moment,  it’s still that time for ice cream cakes, shakes, cookies and pies.  It is August after all!

Speaking of pies, how perfect is it that ice cream week is kicking off on National Ice Cream Pie Day?

Pretty good timing if I say so myself.

The idea for this pie was planted in my head after my brother made a candy bar pie featuring some chocolate peanut butter nougat and caramel.  I think you can figure out what candy I’m talking about right?

That was the pie of peanut butter, chocolate and caramel lovers dreams but I knew it could be improved with one item.

Ice Cream!!

Actually I lie, my brothers pie could be improved with two items, ice cream and homemade all-natural organic ingredients.  I splurge on the bad stuff now and then but when it comes down to it, if I’m already indulging in a chocolate, peanut butter and caramel laden pie it should use the best ingredients possible.

Ingredients
  • 20 peanut butter chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 pint chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream or gelato, softened slightly
  • ½ cup roasted salted peanuts, chopped
  • 4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
Instructions

  2. Make the caramel if using homemade or warmup store bought.
  3. Drizzle about ¼ cup of caramel sauce on the bottom of the pie and then cover with the softened ice cream spreading it out in an even surface.
  4. Place the pie back in the freezer for another 15-20 minutes and remove to sprinkle the chopped peanuts across the top and another ¼ cup of caramel sauce drizzled over.
  5. Place back in the freezer.
  6. In a small saucepan bring the heavy cream to a simmer and pour over the chocolate in a small mixing bowl. Let sit for 1-2 minutes before stirring to completely melt the chocolate. Continue to stir until the ganache has thickened up.

  8. Serve any additional caramel sauce on the side with some chopped peanuts.
