Ice Cream Pie

I like pie. Whats not to like? Easy to make and very satisfying. We are only a couple of days in to the summer holidays and the kids are already getting harder to keep stimulated. Enter the Ice Cream Pie. The kids had a lot of fun making this pie as it involves mixing a lot of ingredients into a sticky mess. I even fought to lick the spoon. I lost.

The Ingredients:

1 tub of vanilla ice cream

1 Cadburys Crunchie

1 Cadburys Caramel

1 pack Reeces peanut cupcakes

1 pack McVities Hob Nobs

1 cup brown sugar

50g unsalted butter

Caramel sauce:

200g caster sugar

140ml double cream

50g unsalted butter

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 pinch of sea salt ( optional )

The Make:

Let ice cream soften up out of the fridge. Chop up chocolate into small pieces. We used a rolling pin and bashed them in to uneven pieces. Blitz up Hob Nobs in a food processor. Pulse in 1 cup of brown sugar and 50g of melted butter. Allow crumbs to come together into a dough. In a shallow pan press out the dough to make a base for your pie. We used a disposable foil tray. Place biscuit base into a 160C pre-heated oven for 5 min. Take out and allow to cool. Pour melted ice cream into a large bowl and mix in the chocolate pieces. Pour this mix into the biscuit base and place into the freezer to allow to set. For the caramel sauce, pour the caster sugar into a saucepan. Add in 2 tablespoons of water. On a high heat melt the sugar down until the colour changes to a light brown. Once the colour is right take it off the heat and carefully stir in the butter, cream and vanilla essence. Set aside and allow to cool. Do not let the kids make this. Hot sugar is incredible dangerous. Gently warm up the caramel sauce before serving.

Enjoy.
