Cakes and pies never go out of style.  While freshly baked, hot pies might be ideal for the upcoming winter months, we’ve still got a little bit of time left to appreciate a chilled ice cream pie.  Let’s get real.  We know white supposedly doesn’t fly after Labor Day, but no one said anything about having to retire your love of ice cream!

I know, I know, you can go out and BUY one of these very easily, but come on, don’t you want the satisfaction of saying, “Oh, this? I made it myself!”  I know you do.  Well, now you have that chance: a quick, easy, simple mint chip ice cream pie, made with a unique, delicious crust!  Don’t like mint chip ice cream, don’t worry, you can make it with whatever flavor you’d like.  You can even try it with froyo!  Enjoy!

What you’ll need:

  • 8 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate (melted)
  • 4 cups crisped rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
  • 2 pints mint chocolate-chip ice cream, slightly softened (or whatever flavor your heart desires)

How to make it:

First, grab a large bowl and combine the chocolate and cereal until the cereal is completely coated. Then, transfer to a 9-inch springform pan where you’ll press the mixture into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of the pan. Then, freeze just until firm, only 5 to 10 minutes. Spread the ice cream in the prepared crust and freeze, covered, until firm, for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.  Then, there you go!  Delicious!
