Laurie's Story

I recently bought some french vanilla ice cream to use with a Dutch Apple Pie. Since we don't like plain vanilla ice cream, I needed a way to use the leftovers. Everyone loves peanut butter and chocolate so this frozen silky treat was born.

Ingredients

1 qt
softened french vanilla ice cream
1 c
chunky style peanut butter
1
pre-made chocolate or vanilla cookie crust
1/2 c
salted peanuts coarsely chopped
1 c
jar of hot fudge ice cream topping melted
canned or fresh whipped cream
10 small
peanut butter cups
2 Tbsp
caramel ice cream topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, soften the ice cream.
2
With electric mixer on low, whip in the peanut butter until well blended.
3
Spoon 1/2 of ice cream mixture into pie crust.
4
Top ice cream with 3/4 cup of the melted, cooled hot fudge. Top fudge with 1/4 cup of salted chopped peanuts.
5
Pour remaining ice cream into pie shell. Put remaining fudge in a plastic bag and cut off one corner. Drizzle top of pie with fudge. Drizzle caramel ice cream topping over the pie with a spoon.
6
Sprinkle top of pie with the remaining 1/4 cup peanuts. Cover and freeze for 2 or more hours until firm.
7
Decorate with whipped cream around the edges. Place peanut butter cups around the whipped cream (optional.)
8
When ready to serve, take pie from freezer and slice with a warm knife that's been run under hot water. Return unused portion covered to the freezer.
