Reese Cup Ice Cream Pie

I've got a sweet treat for you tonight! This is such an easy dessert to whip together! It is extremely versatile too. If you're not a peanut butter lover than feel free to substitute your favorite candy bar instead. I'm sure using Butterfinger, Whoppers, M&M's, or even Twix would make delicious ice cream pies as well! This will be the perfect thing to make this summer for those hot and humid days...

1 Graham Cracker Crust Pie Shell
8 Reese Cups, chopped into small pieces
Vanilla Ice Cream, half of a box container
2-3 T. Peanut Butter, heaping

Carefully take apart the ice cream container so that you can easily cut the block in half with a knife. Seal it back up and put in the freezer for a later use. Transfer the other half into your mixer and start mixing it until creamy. Add peanut butter, mix. Add chopped up candy and mix well. Pour into the pie shell and using a spatula, smooth the top over so it is all even. Cover and place in the freezer until frozen through. (I'd say about 5 hours, it's even better if you leave it overnight) Garnish with whipped cream and extra reese cups, if desired.


  1. It sounds really good, but what's the measurement for the ice cream?

  2. I bought a half gallon of ice cream and used about half of it.
