Make Homemade Fudge Sauce

Youll start by making a homemade fudge sauce. Start with this step so it has time to cool. You can even put the pan in the fridge to help it cool quickly.

  • In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate and butter over low heat and stir until smooth.
  • Add the sugar, cocoa, corn syrup and water. Cook until the sugar dissolves.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and cook on low heat, without stirring, until the mixture thickens, or about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Set this aside to cool.

If you scrape the sides of the bowl while the mixture is boiling, youll add sugar crystals to the sauce, making it not as smooth as it could be. Just allow the mixture to boil over low heat.

Can I use store bought chocolate syrup?

Yes, if you want to take the easy route you can just buy hot fudge ice cream topping instead. Homemade fudge sauce, though? Mouthwatering. And it is easier than you think!

Make The Ice Cream Filling

In order to mix the ice cream easily, youll want to soften the ice cream first. You can do this by placing it the refrigerator for 20 minutes or so before you start making the pie. Or if youre lucky like we are, your microwave has a soften ice cream setting. Works like a charm!

You want the ice cream soft, but not totally melted. If it is melted, the marshmallows and chocolate chips will fall to the bottom of the pie and it wont have as creamy of a texture as it should.

  • Mix together 3 cups of ice cream with 1 cup mini marshmallows and 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Spread this over the fudge layer.
  • Smooth the top of it out with a spoon.

Can I use a different flavor of ice cream?

Yes! Use any flavor that youd like. Ice cream with peanut butter or chocolate would be delicious.

Lastly, youll drizzle some caramel ice cream topping on the top of the pie.

How To Make An Ice Cream Pie

Easy Ice Cream Pie Recipe (the best ice cream pie!)

It’s so simple to make an ice cream pie, but knowing a few things beforehand will set you up for success and make it a lot easier to do.

Start by crushing up whole Oreos, cream centers and all. This is easiest with a food processor or blender as you want the crumbs to be pretty fine, but you can definitely use the rolling pin and ziploc bag method instead.

Add the melted butter to the Oreo crumbs and toss them together to evenly moisten everything. Then press the crust mixture into the bottom of a springform pan or pie plate. At this point, I like to bake my crust for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees F to set it, but you can definitely skip that part and just stick the crust in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up instead.

Let the vanilla and mint chip ice creams soften on the counter for 10-15 minutes. It’s so frustrating trying to make this pie when your ice cream is rock hard! Giving the ice cream a little time to soften before adding it to the crust makes this so much easier!

Scoop the vanilla ice cream layer into the bottom crust first, then place a piece of plastic wrap over the top. Press down with your hands to make an even vanilla layer, then remove the plastic wrap.

Sprinkle a layer of broken up Oreos onto the vanilla ice cream. You want bigger pieces than crumbs for this layer so that there is more crunch for a textural contrast in the ice cream pie, so I like to just chop these up by hand rather than using the food processor.

Can I Use A Different Flavor Of Ice Cream

Mississippi Mud Ice Cream Pie is traditionally made with coffee ice cream, but if youre not a fan of it, you can certainly swap it out for something you love. I think cookies & cream, chocolate, cookie dough, vanilla, etc., would all be delicious. But I do love this with coffee ice cream the very best

Total random side note here. If you do love coffee ice cream, then you need to try the Mud Pie Mojo from Cold Stone. Its their coffee Ice Cream with Oreos, peanut butter, roasted almonds and fudge. Its da bomb!

Tips To Make The Perfect Caramel Toffee Ice Cream Pie

For the crust you can go with a store bought crust, just remember they are usually 8 1/2 inches so youll probably have extra filling

I like to make my own caramel sauce it only takes a few mins. Make sure you use a thermometer so the sauce hits the right temperature otherwise it could be too thin or too thick.

Also remember to adjust for your altitude Being at 4500 ft altitude I adjust my recipes by 20 degrees!

Water boils at sea level at 212, for me at 192 so a 20 degree difference. What does water boil at where you live?

If you are going with a store bought sauce make sure you get a high quality thick sauce, not something super runny. You should have to heat it slightly to make it pour-able.

It only takes about 3 mins to make fresh whipped cream, which I feels makes a huge difference in flavor. If you sub out for whipped cream take away the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla in the recipe.

You can use any pudding flavor you want, Ive used vanilla, white chocolate and cheesecake with this pie. For a variation one of my favorites is pistachio
