Whether it’s an ice cream cake, an icebox cake, or an ice cream pie, we’re all about frozen desserts around here. They’re simple to make and always seem to make a crowd of folks happy. Well, this Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Pie might be the ultimate crowd pleaser. It’s insanely good.
You know you’re off to a good start when you’re using peanut butter and chocolate in a dessert. Add in a crunchy Oreo crust and fill it with some ice cream… it’s deceptively easy. And good enough to make your eyes roll back in your head. After it chills, the only thing left to do is top it with some chocolate, chopped peanut butter cups, and a few peanuts. Then, chill out and have a slice of pie.
