Reeses Ice Cream Pie

For those hot summer days or quiet winter nights Reeses Ice Cream Pie with chocolate crust is a cinch to throw together and absolutely no stress!

I know this makes me slightly un-American but I am not a huge ice cream fan. I am married to one and our kids are somewhere in between. After making our crazy popular peanut butter pie recipe the kids wanted an ice cream version and since it’s what we used to make for ice cream cakes minus the brownie bottom I decided to go for it. 

 

I was shocked that out of all of us it was little Grayson who devoured slice after slice. 

HOW?! I expected him to be sick to his stomach but ice cream does not phase the child! 

Peanut butter chocolate ice cream and gobs upon gobs of reese’s are piled high in a chocolate graham cracker pie crust. And here’s the best part, you can do whatever you want to it to make it your own!

Ingredients for Reeses Ice Cream Pie

The ingredients are simple and all revolve around chocolate and peanut butter…heaven!! I’ve linked to the different Reese’s products on Amazon just so you can see what I’m talking about. You don’t need to order them from there. They come in packs of like a million, so you definitely don’t need that much. And like I said, you can make it your own! I have a section below on other ideas for toppings. These are the ingredients you will need for this recipe:

For the Crust

  • Chocolate Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Hot Fudge

For the Pie

The measurements for each ingredient can be found in the recipe card at the end of the post.

How to Make Reeses Ice Cream Pie

Making pie doesn’t get easier! And it’s all about the ice cream! First you make the crust, then mix together the filling and finally top with the candy goodness! Here are the steps:

For the Crust

  1. Preheat the oven.
  2. Combine the ingredients except the hot fudge and press it into the pie dish.
  3. Bake and cool.
  4. Cover with hot fudge and freeze.

For the Pie

  1. Mix the ice in a stand mixer until smooth and add the Cool Whip and mix until combined.
  2. Turn the mixer to low speed and add dollops of peanut butter to get peanut butter swirls.
  3. Pour into the pie crust and spread evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze.
  4. Remove the pie from the freezer shortly before serving and top with the candies. Serve!

All of these instructions in full detail can be found in the recipe at the end of the post. You are also able to print and save the recipe there.

Other Ideas for Toppings:

  • Reese’s Pieces
  • M&Ms
  • Take 5 bars
  • Snickers
  • Twix
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Nutter Butters
  • Oreos
  • Hot Fudge
  • Warmed peanut butter

You could also switch up the ice cream flavors too! Go where your heart and belly lead you!

 

Can I Use Whipped Cream?

I realize that there’s a strong anti-Cool Whip population out there, so yes, you can definitely use whipped cream. I use Cool Whip to make the recipe as easy as possible. Heck, you use a store bought crust too!

To use whipped cream, whip 1 cup of heavy cream and sweeten it to your liking. It will whip up to around 2 cups, then combine it with the ice cream.

 

How Long Does Ice Cream Pie Last in the Freezer?

Put a lid on the pie plate if you have one and then double wrap it in plastic wrap and then foil. It is best eaten within 2-3 days for optimal texture and flavor. I wouldn’t let it go past 5 days.

When to Eat Ice Cream Pie?

Always.

The answer is always. It’s great for those hot summer days to cool down and spend little time in the kitchen. It’s also wonderful on a cozy winter night when you crave a comfort dessert but want something a little more interesting than a plain bowl of ice cream.

Always.

You all know I love pie as much, no, MORE, than the next person. I will take pie over almost any other dessert every single time. Whether it’s warm or cold, give me all the pie! Combine chocolate, peanut butter and ice cream, and it simply can’t be resisted! Reeses ice cream pie is easy and a dessert that everyone loves!
