Milk Bar Debuts 4 New Ice Cream Pints At Whole Foods
Milk Bar, the dessert company founded by award-winning chef Christina Tosi in New York Citys East Village in 2008, announces the launch of a new line of ice cream pints available at all Whole Foods locations starting June 1st.
Milk Bar treats are available in bakery locations across the country, through their eCommerce site that ships care packages nationwide, and most recently in grocery stores. The brand entered grocery in April 2020, launching with soft-baked Cookies followed by Truffle Crumb Cakes which developed a quick cult following. Milk Bar has since expanded their grocery presence to thousands of retail locations nationwide, and now launch ice cream as their third grocery category offering.
The launch also marks the first time Milk Bar will offer ice cream outside of their bakeries, which have long been known for experimenting with with other frozen treats, from freshly spun, silky-smooth soft serve to milkshakes and more, including their iconic, familiar-yet-unexpected soft serve flavor Cereal Milk.
THE FLAVORS :
Birthday Cake: A love letter to Milk Bars signature sprinkle flecked layer cake with unfrosted sides, this flavor brings the same delicious layering effect with birthday cake flavored ice cream, birthday crumbs and ribbons of birthday frosting. All the celebration, any day of the week.
Milk Bar Pie: Deep vanilla ice cream swirled with a gooey butter filling and toasted oat crumble reimagines Milk Bars signature pie in ice cream form.
Do I Have To Use Corn Powder
Because I was halving the Momofuku crack pie recipe, this meant 1/8th cup or 2 tablespoons corn powder and rather than ordering or sourcing it at Whole Paycheck, I simply used 1 1/2 tablespoon King Arthur all-purpose flour and things turned out just fine.
It must be all the sugar and fat in this pie that kept me from missing those two tablespoons of corn powder because there is so much going on already. Butter in the cookie to make the crust, then more butter adding when crumbling and packing the crust down into the pie plate, more butter in the filling.
And I sure wasnt complaining.

As a lover of cereal, this was great and I would come again for sure. Definitely get the cereal milk ice cream + crack pie, avoid candybarpie unless you love eating pure caramel syrup. Compost cookie + pretzel ice cream is good, but not the best on the menu for your first time. Clearly I spend too much time here.

Momofuku Milk Bar Crack Pie
Momofuku Milk Bar Pie is an utterly delicious recipe perfect for a sweet indulgence. Made with a sweet, with just the right hint of salty, oatmeal cookie crust and filled with a custard-like filling, this pie is sure to please. Top it with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or ice cream, you truly cant go wrong!
I have heard countless stories about the famed Milk Bar Pie from Momofuku Milk Bar in New York City. Ive never been there myself but based on the lore, I could only imagine how amazing it must be. A while back, I gifted myself with the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, which is where the recipe for the compost cookies originated.
The Crack Pie recipe was included at the very end of the book, as a bonus track, for anyone who grew up listening to cassette tapes or CDs. I was long overdue on making it, and finally dove right in. At first glance, the recipe is long with multiple steps, but Im glad I finally got right to it. Spoiler: its not nearly as difficult as it seems at first glance!

What To Actually Try At The Milk Bar Flagship
Cereal Milk: Best sampled either as cool soft serve or as actual sweet-salty milk the latter is off-menu but available.
Peppermint snaps: A chocolate wafer layered with caramel and pretzels, dipped in white chocolate peppermint bark each flavor comes through clearly without devolving into heavy sweetness .
Birthday cake or corn truffles: Small snacky bites flavored like vanilla cake or vegetal corn and caramel. Eat them cold .
Apple pie soft serve : The texture is a bit thin, but it packs a wallop of cider flavor .
Cerealsies: Try the spicy cinnamon-sugar spheres or the Andes-like mint variety . Avoid the birthday flavor.
Milk Bar pie: A riff on chess pie that tames buttery, sugary goodness with an oat crust .
Strawberry corn Milkquake: A slightly soupy mix of Cereal Milk soft serve with fragrant pickled strawberries and salty cake bites .
Chocolate cookies: Underbaked , but with enough chocolate and salt to counterbalance the sugars .
Anyone whos ever encountered a bagel bite at a coffee chain, Fruit Loop-flavored ice cream at a grocery store, or unironic funfetti desserts can send Tosi a thank-you note. Milk Bars influence is nothing less than immense.

Momofuku Milk Bar Exam No 15
In the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, Christina Tosi describes this pie as being a little bit of a bitch to make. So of course, I had to try it!
And I have to say, she was not lying. This is certainly the most difficult recipe Ive made from this cookbook, if not ever. There are a lot of moving parts and everything has to be well orchestrated before you begin. So please please please read the directions carefully and then reread them. Picture them in your mind. Carve them into your soul. Because trust me, this pie may be a bit of a bitch to make but it is so unbelievably worth it.
If this pie was a story, itd be an epic saga so before I go any further you should go grab a drink and perhaps even a snack Ok, ready? Alright well, I suppose as Julie Andrews would say, lets start from the very beginning. In this case, the beginning is a chocolate crust. Did you know that not all cocoa powders are created equal? In general, cocoa powders fall under two categories: Dutch-process cocoa powder, a much darker powder which has undergone an acid-neutralization process and natural cocoa powder, in which the cacao beans are simply roasted and pulverized. Alright, Im just spouting whatever David Lebovitz says here. Read more about it from him, its actually really helpful!
Dutch-process vs. natural
So I paused the button on the salty caramel and decided to make something that looked a little simpler, the peanut brittle.
First Make The Oat Cookie
- Prepare for baking: Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Cream butter and sugars in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment on medium-high for 2 to 3 minutes, until fluffy and pale yellow.
- Mix in egg yolk : Scrape down the sides and switch to low speed. Add the egg yolk then increase the speed to medium-high. Beat 1 to 2 minutes until the mixture is pale white.
- Add dry ingredients: Scrape down the sides and switch speed to low. Add flour, oats, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until the dough comes together and there are no remnants of dry ingredients, about 1 minute.
- Spread the dough : Turn the dough out onto the baking sheet and, using an offset spatula, spread to a ¼-inch thickness .
- Bake 15 minutes, or until the middle of the cookie is puffed, but the edges are firmly set. Cool completely before using.

Hey yall! My name is Amy and Im happy to be visiting here from She Wears Many Hats. Robyn is a very special friend of mine. I love her like a sister. Almost as good as this pie Im going to share with you. Nah, I love her much better than this pie, and thats saying a lot because this is durn good pie.
A couple of years back a friend brought this delicious candy bar pie over for a get-together. And, oh my, was it good. After one bite, I asked about its goodness. Come to find out, it was a very naughty pie. Naughty indeed. I tucked the recipe away in the back of my mind for later blackmail needs.
Later, as I was looking through one of my aunts cookbooks, I stumbled across this same pie recipe. I couldnt believe the recipe had been in my possession all that time. Probably a good thing for my hineys sake.
Like I said, its naughty, not just because of the ingredients, which well get to in a sec, but because its way too easy. Its like cheating.
No. It is cheating.
Im a cheater. So there.
This is naughty, cheating pie fixing yall. Lets get to it.
Youll only need 4 things: graham cracker/cookie pie shell , slivered almonds , Hersheys chocolate candy bars , and whipped topping.
The original candy bar pie recipe calls for Hersheys chocolate bars with almonds, but I goofed and bought the regular Hersheys chocolate bar without almonds. It was delicious anyway. Use either.
