Black Bottom French Vanilla Ice Cream Pie

Anyone that knows me and has been reading my posts here (and if you haven’t why not?! But now is a great time to start), knows I do not do well in the baking department. I am trying to slowly change that, but those are for future posts….. or tips on how to avoid disasters in the kitchen. I do, however, have an easy, delightful dessert right here that makes a great summertime…..or any time really…..treat. And did I mention it’s super easy?

My mom used to make this for my birthday. She used white chocolate mousse ice cream, which was one of my favorite flavors, but we can’t seem to find that any more. So for this one, I used french vanilla ice cream, but you can use any flavor that you like.

Here’s what you need:

*1 chocolate pie crust; I used OREO pie crust brand

*chocolate syrup

*french vanilla ice cream; I used

*whip cream

Take out ice cream 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.
