Ice Cream Pie

I was given this recipe years ago, and it is a family favorite. I made it today for the February installment of Margaret's boyfriend's birthday present.

These are the four ingredients.

Melt over low temperature: 3 Tablespoons butter and 4 ounces chocolate chips or baking chocolate.

Put 2 cups of rice cereal in a bowl, and when butter and chocolate are melted mix altogether.

Grease a pie plate with butter.
Spoon rice mixture into the pie plate.

Top with 1 pint of ice cream. I like to soften it first to make it easier to spread. Be careful not to tear up the crust when spreading the ice cream.

Put in freezer.

And that's it! An incredibly easy and delicious dessert.

You may vary it by using crushed Oreos or Newman-O's, or Rice Krispies for the crust, and any flavor ice cream. I always use my old friend, Ben & Jerry's. Today's flavor was Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Voilà!

  1. HI Nan: This looks so good, and yet so simple. I do hope those are milk chocolate chips you are using. :0)

  2. Ha, ha, Donna! Because I was making it for someone else, I used semi-sweet. If it were just for me, I'd use the bittersweet! If you make it, I'd love to know if you like it, using milk choc. of course!

  7. Gah! Just had cookie dough ice cream last night! Might have to try this pie trick...but I'd be afraid of being ridden with food guilt!

    Then again, maybe not... :)

  9. I'll have to remember this recipe for later in the year. I've never enjoyed eating ice cream in the winter. Weird, huh? this does sound yummy, though. And I like the fact that it's so easy!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
