Coffee Chocolate Ice Cream Pie

Here's a really easy Ice Cream Pie to celebrate Coffee Ice Cream Day! This recipe is adapted from an old recipe in Bon Appetit. You can actually use any ice cream, but since it's National Coffee Ice Cream Day, why not use coffee ice cream?


1 cup whipping cream
8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon instant coffee crystals
1/2 teaspoon Madagascar vanilla extract
1 pint coffee ice cream, softened
1- 9 inch chocolate cookie crust*
10 Oreos, crushed coarsely (about 1 cup)
1 pint chocolate ice cream, softened

Bring whipping cream to simmer in small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chunks; whisk until chocolate is melted. 
Whisk in coffee and vanilla. Let cool.
Spread softened ice cream evenly in crust. 
Pour 3/4 cup chocolate sauce over ice cream; sprinkle with crushed Oreos. 
Freeze until ice cream is firm (20 minutes). 
Drizzle 1/3 cup sauce over pie. 
Spread softened chocolate ice cream (gently) on top. Sprinkle with crushed Oreos.
Freeze pie until firm, 2 hours at least.

sounds delish! & I have to confess that while I don't like their coffee, starbucks' java chip ice cream is my absolute fave - even melted!
