Anything involving ice cream is always a huge favorite at our house, which is why I knew this Rice Krispie Ice Cream Pie would be a smashing success at our house. When I ran across this recipe months ago, it reminded me of this Ice Cream Pie , which happens to be one of our very favorite desserts. I bookmarked it, and like so many recipes that I bookmark, it was forgotten.
I’m not even sure what made me think about this the other day, it might have been the box of Rice Krispies sitting on my pantry shelf, who knows. I’m just glad something tweaked my little brain and got me to finally make this. Um, it’s amaaaazing (which I had no doubts about) and so easy peasy to make.
The thing I love about this pie, besides the fact it’s so simple to make, is how versatile it is. You can choose any ice cream flavor you like. If you can’t decide, use two different flavors. I used Dreyer’s Caramel Delight and it was fabulous. I swirled in some extra caramel which made it even more fabulous. Now if you’re worried about the peanut butter in the crust limiting what flavors you can use, don’t! According to the post on Foodiecrush, Heidi says that the bottom of her grandmother’s recipes card reads, “green peppermint choc. chip is gram’s fave.” I may just have to try that.
The only thing I think I would probably do the next time I make these is one and a half the crust recipe so it’s slightly thicker because that is my favorite part of this dessert! This is such a great dessert for summertime. Who doesn’t love an ice cream pie?!
Just a few simple ingredients. . .
- Rice Krispies cereal
- Peanut butter
- Corn syrup
- Ice cream flavor of your choice
It’s hard to believe that you only need four simple ingredients for a refreshing, delicious, perfect summertime dessert. You’re seriously going to love this pie!
Use your favorite flavor store-bought or homemade ice cream.
Get creative with the flavor combinations. . . they are endless. Whatever ice cream flavor you use you can add some fruit, ice cream toppings, chopped candy bar, nuts, etc. on top.
These ice cream pies are so easy to make. Once you make the very simple crust, just gently scooped softened ice cream into the crust and either keep it “clumpy” or smooth it out if you’d like. You can use glass or tin pie plates.Print
- 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- ⅓ cup chunky peanut butter (smooth is fine too)
- ⅓ cup light corn syrup
- 1½ –2 quarts softened ice cream flavor of your choice (depending on size of ice cream container)
- Butter the bottom and sides of a 9″ pie pan, set aside.
- In a large bowl, add the peanut butter and corn syrup, stir until well combined. Add the Rice Krispies and mix until well combined (mixture will be thick). Gently press the mixture into the pan and up the sides.
- Fill the crust with the softened ice cream and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Remove from freezer about 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
