Today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, so I plan to make Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Pie! I have two recipes: One Retro and One Modern.
The first recipe is a Retro Jell-O Chocolate Ice Cream Pie Ad & Recipe from Good Housekeeping, 1959. O.K. this is not how I would make it. Why not just use some chocolate ice cream? Scroll down for an easy recipe for a more 'modern' Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Pie!
'Modern' Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Pie
Since I'm all about Chocolate, the pie shell can be made with chocolate wafers or oreos.. either works well.
To make the crust, crumb up the wafers or oreos either by putting them
in a plastic bag and running a rolling pin over them or by whirling them
in your food processor. Add 1/2 stick of melted butter (or a bit more)
and press into a 9" pie plate, going up the side. Bake for 5-10 minutes
at 350 -- or not. Since this is an ice-cream pie, it's not really going
to matter if you bake it or not!
After the pie shell is cooled (if you bake it), spoon in the softened chocolate ice cream. Now here's where you can get creative--either a chocolate or a chocolate brownie ice cream such as Haagen Daz Chocolate or Ben & Jerry's Chocolate or Chocolate Fudge Brownie would be perfect! Then freeze!
Helpful hint: make sure to position the pie flat in your freezer.
And finally, top with Hot Fudge Sauce!
