Happy summer everyone! Now I know that I have been posting many decadent desserts lately, but it is summer. Soon I’ll try to fit in a meal recipe. Today I have one, last sweet treat. I made a Snickers Ice Cream Brownie Pie. It’s basically a really rich and yummy treat with a lot of caramel and chocolate. The first layer and crust is made of brownie, the second layer is vanilla ice cream mixed with chopped Snickers, and the top layer is chopped Snickers and chocolate and caramel. Does that sound totally amazing or what?! It’s a great summer dessert, and all of my cousins in Massachusetts LOVED it!
Mmmmmmm that looks so tasty! It was really hard to get a good picture of this pie. We had to keep it frozen all the time otherwise it would melt super fast, so cutting through frozen brownie was a bit challenging. Thankfully (and surprisingly), we were able to get a good picture piece on our first cut piece. If you make this recipe, let it sit for a couple minutes before you try to cut it. Just make sure that the ice cream doesn’t melt before you start cutting it. Other than that you should be fine
This pie was easy to make for the most part. I made the brownie crust, put chocolate sauce in between the brownies and ice cream, and finally put on the ice cream. The majority of the recipe is just waiting for things (like brownies to finish baking, pie freezing, etc.). The picture looks like it would take DAYS to finish a masterpiece like this, but it doesn’t… so don’t worry.
I’m one of those kids who totally relaxes over summer. I retire my hairbrush until August, lock up my school uniform in my closet, and break out the T-shirts and basketball shorts. My school starts back up on August 12th. It’s wayyyy too early to start school. There should be laws against it! “No school allowed until September 1st!”
That is what I call a fantabulous amazing really cool scrumptious dessert! All of that caramel and chocolate is making my mouth water so much right now! I feel like a river is flowing through my mouth just looking at this scrumdiddlyumptious pie. Did you guys see the World Cup finals? Go Germany! It’s really cool because Germany was the underdog in the semifinals, but they came up and beat Brazil in their home country! Other teams have a star player, like Messi of Argentina or Ronaldo of Portugal, but Germany doesn’t have that. Germany has a great, well-rounded team with no huge star player. It’s a shame that the U.S. didn’t win the World Cup, but congratulations Germany! Oh and a little heads up, I am flying to Alaska tomorrow! Our salmon expedition is rapidly approaching. I can’t wait to tell you guys about it!!!
And even a kid can make a decadent pie that everyone loves… Like Me!
Snickers Ice Cream Brownie Pie
Yield: 1 pie!
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 25 min
This pie is amazing!!!
1 cup butter
8-ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup granulated white sugar
5 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
6 regular-sized Snickers candy bars, chopped and divided
3/4 cup hot fudge
hot fudge and caramel sauce, for garnish
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a glass pie pan with nonstick spray (you can also do this in a springform pan, but it will be more like a round cake instead of a pie).
2. In a large bowl, combine the butter and chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Whisk in the sugar. Add eggs and whisk until well-combined. Whisk in the flour until smooth. Pour the batter into your prepared pan. Bake 25 minutes. Let cool completely.
3. In a large bowl, combine the ice cream and half of the chopped Snickers bars.
4. Spread the hot fudge evenly over the brownie layer. Spread the ice cream mixture over the hot fudge. Freeze for 4 hours (or until firm). Drizzle more hot fudge and caramel sauce over the ice cream. Sprinkle remaining chopped Snickers bars on top. Keep in the freezer until ready to serve. If cutting is too tough, just leave it out for a few minutes to soften before cutting.
