bHere's a really easy Ice Cream Pie to celebrate Coffee Ice Cream Day! This recipe is adapted from an old recipe in Bon Appetit. In this recipe you use both coffee and chocolate ice cream!
CHOCOLATE COFFEE ICE CREAM PIE
1 cup whipping cream
8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1 tsp instant coffee crystals
1/2 tsp pure 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 coffee 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 rest of sauce (about 1/3 cup?) over pie.
Spread softened chocolate ice cream (gently) on top. Sprinkle with crushed Oreos.
Freeze pie until firm, 2 hours at least.
