Ice Cream Pie

For dessert on Valentine's Day I made an ice cream pie. I think it turned out pretty good and was very easy to make. I used a 9 inch pie plate instead of an 8 inch. If you make this definitely use an 8 inch pan - the bottom layer was on the thinner side with the 9 inch pan.

1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups crisp rice cereal
1/4 cup sour cream
1 quart of your favorite ice cream - we used Heath Bar ice cream


Coat bottom and sides of an 8-inch pie plate with butter. Combine chocolate syrup and chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high until hot, about 45 seconds. Stir until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup of the chocolate mixture.

Combine remaining chocolate mixture and cereal in a medium bowl and mix to coat cereal. Press mixture over bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

Combine reserved chocolate mixture and the sour cream in a small bowl and mix well. Spread half of the ice cream in the prepared pie plate. Drizzle with half the sour cream mixture. Top with remaining ice cream and drizzle with remaining sour cream mixture. Freeze pie, covered until firm, about 1 hour. I also had some Heath Toffee chips that I put on top before freezing.
