I don’t know what the weather is like where you are at, but down here in the South, summer is already here. This week has been in the high 90’s with the heat index of triple digits. *whew* So now that the days are getting warmer, there is nothing better than some cold, flavorful ice cream. But why stop there, how about an ice cream pie. This Black Bottom French Vanilla ice cream pie is rich and satisfying with sweet, cool French vanilla ice cream and an Oreo pie crust that has been smothered in luscious chocolate syrup. But that’s not all, it’s then topped with more chocolate syrup and fluffy whip cream.
My mom used to make this for my birthday when I was a kid and to this day I still get a craving for it. She used white chocolate mousse, but it’s harder to find now so I substituted French vanilla. You can choose what ever flavor you wish as well. There is no baking required and this is something that the whole family can make. The hardest part to this, is waiting for the pie to chill before eating.
Here’s what you need:
*1 chocolate pie crust; I used an OREO pie crust
*French vanilla ice cream
Take out the ice cream about 10 to 15 minutes to soften.
Lay out the chocolate pie crust, pour and spread the chocolate syrup on the bottom of the pie crust; just enough to cover it.
Place in the freezer for about an hour or until chocolate syrup has thickened.
Scoop out some of the vanilla ice cream and place into the pie crust.
spread the ice cream until smooth.
Cover and freeze for 2 hours. Cut and serve with chocolate syrup drizzled over the top and top with whipped cream.
