I wanted to make something with ice cream & sundae toppings & came up with this. The toppings & amounts can vary to your liking. Next time I think I may try strawberry in the middle. Hope you enjoy as much as we did!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you have a sweet tooth, this ice cream pie is for you. This no-bake pie will be a hit around your table for those of all ages. Hot fudge coats the graham cracker crust and then a layer of marshmallow cream is added. Then chocolate or vanilla ice cream are added along with more fudge and marshmallow. Topped with more ice cream and drizzled with caramel, the hardest part of this dessert is waiting for it to freeze. You can really use two of your favorite ice cream flavors for this. Or, if you like nuts, you could even add some chopped pecans or peanuts between the two ice cream layers. Have fun with this easy summertime dessert!

Ingredients For ice cream pie

  • 1
    graham cracker pie crust
  • 1 jar
    hot fudge topping
  • 1 jar
    marshmallow topping
  • 2 - 3 c
    chocolate ice cream (your favorite brand)
  • 2 - 3 c
    vanilla ice cream (your favorite brand)

How To Make ice cream pie

  • Hot fudge spread over a graham cracker crust.
    Heat hot fudge topping just enough to achieve a spreadable consistency. (You can also spread this cold but I found that a little warm worked better.) Spread topping on the bottom of the graham cracker pie crust & up the sides. You can set out the ice cream to soften or just pop it in the microwave for about 10 - 15 seconds right before using.
  • Spreading marshmallow creme over the hot fudge.
    Spread the marshmallow topping next. Same as hot fudge; you may want to heat it a bit for easier spreading. Freeze for about 15 - 20 minutes or until cold enough so that when you spread the ice cream on top it doesn't move.
  • Layer of chocolate ice cream added.
    Spread either your chocolate or vanilla (or whatever flavor you prefer) ice cream next.
  • Remaining hot fudge, marshmallow creme, and ice cream added.
    Use whatever leftover hot fudge/marshmallow topping you have and place the second ice cream. Freeze again until the ice cream and toppings are firm. When you spread your next ice cream flavor, you want it to stay in place. Freeze until you are ready to serve.
  • A slice of Ice Cream Pie on a plate with caramel drizzle.
    Drizzle caramel topping on each slice according to your preference. Cover and place leftovers (if any) in the freezer.
